    Now that Fall is upon us, I thought it would be fun to post some pics of fall colors. I know we did this last season. Here are a couple from Lake Shelbyville IL.

    Beautiful! The leaves have just started changing here in Southeastern PA. We should have some good pictures of Fall from the French Creek Rally.

    Keep the photos rolling folks! We don't see many colors out here in the southwest! I about died a few years back when I was in Asheville on business in October. Talk about the forest being on fire!

    Taken in and around Tolland State Forest, MA in the last 2 days. Its still a week or a week and a half before prime foliage too. Absolutely Amazing, made me realize fall foliage trips are a must from here on out!

    Here's a couple I took last weekend. Things aren't too colorful here yet, but we've only had one real cold night. The first photo is on the way to the Kennerdell Lookout -

    <img src="http://inlinethumb50.webshots.com/40241/2568176290058778913S500x500Q85.jpg" border=0>

    This next photo is at the lookout, which overlooks the Allegheny River-

    There were a LOT of people there, including some guy in a kilt playing "Amazing Grace" on the bagpipes. I took video of him, but it would probably take until next fall to upload it with dial up !! <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_lol.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Laugh Out Loud">

    Outstanding folks!!

    We are just getting into fall changing as well. We've not had a real cold snap to date but should get into the uppper 30's Friday night.

    I love camping this time of year!! Keep'em coming.

    I hope we get to see some beautiful color on our next camping trip. On Halloween day, we're driving from Raleigh, NC to northern Kentucky (just outside Cincinnati). Somewhere along that route, the colors should be really nice!

    This'll be my last submission to this thread. We're probably at about as good as it's gonna get for this year -

    Beautiful colors, still green in central Texas. I love fall colors, and love fall camping. It is the best. We took our last trip of the year last week. Loved the air, and smells of beginning fall. Still have time in Texas just no time from our busy lives to camp anymore this year. Thanks for the gorgeous photos.
