We’ve officially made it to the end of another long, hot summer. While we’re sure to miss warm, clear-skied nights, there’s one thing leading us eagerly forward into the crisp September air: the vibrant foliage erupting across the U.S. From dew soaked Red Alder leaves along the coast of Oregon to brilliantly colored Maple leaves along the mountain ridges of New England, here’s our bucket list of must-see fall foliage this autumn.

Stowe, Vermont

Known for its proximity to some phenomenal ski trails, Stowe, Vermont holds nothing back as it approaches its peak season. The prominence of Green Ash, Red Oak, and Maple trees throughout the area bless its mountain sides with a range of colors. Grab a small cabin or a campsite come October in Stowe, and snap away at the vibrancy that surrounds you!

Mount Baker, Washington

Enjoy stunning views along Washington’s mountain range while experiencing full immersion amongst the state’s breathtaking foliage at Mount Baker.

Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

There are two things you’ll need on your packing list for perfect foliage photos at the Columbia River Gorge this fall: your camera and your sense of adventure.

A park doesn’t become as world renowned as Yosemite National Park by being mediocre! You’re guaranteed to be jaw-droppingly wowed should you be lucky enough to explore it this fall. With no shortage of meadows, valleys, and waterfalls, we dare you to leave Yosemite National Park without dozens of photographs you’re dying to print!
