New England and upstate New York have beautiful fall foliage, but we also have wonderful forests that show their colors right here in my home State of New Jersey. I remember how proud my husband was of the Aspen changing color in his home State of Colorado, and it is pretty, but it's only yellow...not our array of colors which include light reds, dark reds, yellows, oranges, tans, browns, green speckled with yellow and so much more.
I look forward to the start of the fall foliage season in September, and then October when the colors are at their peak. Being surrounded by a State forest and preserved "open space" land makes for wonderful drives viewing colors, with stops at orchards, pumpkin patches, to hike, or whatever we might want to do to take in the fall experience along the way.
So come along with me and enjoy colorful forests right here in New Jersey painted with God's paintbrush during the fall of each year.
