These photos look like it is spring or summer and not fall. I love love love the northwest but during this season, I kind of wish I lived on the east coast. Their forests are primarily deciduous trees while ours are evergreen. Fall color is sparse around here while entire forests are changing colors over there. During this season, if you drive through the mountains it will still be green with little dots of red, yellow or orange. One day I'll make it over there during this season to admire the colors.
