Every fall, my grandparents would reserve a weekend for a “color tour” during which they would navigate their boat of an Oldsmobile along winding Midwestern roadways to marvel at the foliage. “October is golden” my grandfather would conclude, his favorite month and also my own.
While there is some October to enjoy, I encourage you to crunch along the lake-shore path to Picnic Point, observe the fall palette, and visit the Fall Foliage Celebration Webpage. This Special Features page is a compilation of sites, organized by science librarians with the University of Buffalo, to highlight the science and spectacle of the season.
With thanks to Amanda W for proposing this Web link.
