My favorite time of the year is here. Lovely autumn! Leaves and entire trees are turning red, orange, yellow and all shades in between. Although the East Coast is best known for its spectacular show of Fall colors, the West Coast is not far behind. Driving a few hours north from the Bay Area through lush mountains and deeply carved gorges of Oregon, there are myriad opportunities for Fall color enthusiasts to do some leaf-peeping. Here are some photos I took during a recent road trip through Oregon for Fall Color inspiration!
