Fall Colors A Plenty!

The contrast between seasons on the Cascade Loop is sharp, and flashy Fall colors emerge from warm summer weather with a force each September/October. Depending on the year and the weather of course, travelers can expect to find vibrant gold larch in the higher elevations, brilliant red vine maple, blazing orange hardwoods and even a few stands of golden quaking aspen. Fall ushers in pleasantly cooler temperatures, perfect for grabbing a quick hike to seek out those truly unique photo opportunities. Rather not venture far? No worries! Plenty of brilliant colors are visible right from the roadway.
