Fall at the Portland Japanese Garden

I have previously shared some details about the newly updated Portland Japanese Garden. I recommend visiting every season to see how it looks different, and so for autumn I visited the last week of October. This is a little later then I would suggest – peak fall color is usually the 2nd and 3rd week of October, but that’s the best my schedule can do, so what could I do? This meant by the time I arrived the famous Japanese maple tree was already naked, having shed its leaves already, butĀ Fall at the Portland Japanese Garden is still gorgeous – here’s a look at my attempts to capture the visual memories I was seeing during my 1.5 hour visit.

Fall Foliage in Upstate New York

Well, here in Portland we went from a nice long summer that lasted until early October straight into the grey and rain of what would be late October. So, I wanted to share a few photos from when I was in upstate New York and enjoyed the beautiful fall colors there.

I was driving and there were so many times I wanted to pull over, the colors and views just were so fantastic, particularly on the highways with all the rolling hills when they were all I could see to my left, right, and in front for miles. There were a couple times on the more local roads I was able to get a few shots. I was told this wasn’t even their peak yet since there were still greens…

So here’s a reminder of some of the colors of fall that are out there, despite our gloomy gray skies here!

Is there anyplace you go for fall colors? Particularly here in the northwest, I’ve had to get used to not seeing all the deciduous trees that I am used to from the Midwest and also from a few fall trips I’ve taken specifically to the East Coast like around New York, Massachusetts, and North Carolina to see the colors.

Autumn

It's turning out to be a beautiful autumn.

I've been accumulating photos here or there from my way to work and back.
