Fall Colors peak in North Alabama

Fall colors in North Alabama are at their peak this week. The Fall Color section of the Alabama Tourism Department’s website was highlighted in recent articles in both The Birmingham News and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  From the article “Fall into colorful leaves on these journeys” by Keith Still in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
 
While most people associate dazzling red and yellow leaves with the New England states, you don’t have to hop a plane to see some wicked-good foliage this fall — and now’s the time to see them. Trees in north Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and northern Alabama are bursting with color to rival any New England landscape. For a day trip or a short weekend check out these nearby wonders…
 
The State of Alabama lists several driving tours that take leaf-watchers through the poplars, maples and hickories of the north. From the Birmingham area northwest to the Natchez Trace, across the top of the state or east down toward Anniston, the Alabama Tourism Department highlights detailed routes that offer prime leaf-viewing, as well as other sights to see in each area. Along the way, check out the covered bridges near Oneonta, Russell Cave near Scottsboro or the antiques shops in Mentone. http://www.alabama.travel/things-to-do/tours-trails/fall-color/
