Fall Foliage Holidays by Rail
The autumn colours of the foliage in the eastern USA are spectacular. Colours so vibrant as to be almost iridescent.The range of colour against the deep blue of the autumn sky as the sun begins its decent into winter will delight and enthral you.
There are two primary reasons for this display. First is the unique weather in the north and north-eastern States. As winter approaches, this area experiences crisp, cool nights with strong sunlit days, this combination intensifies the leaves colours.The second reason is maple trees.They are particularly susceptible the season change and produce the intense reds that a feature of the fall foliage.
Can it be worthwhile to travel 4,000 miles to see some leaves? Yes, it can. Especially when combined with the scenic trains, pretty towns and villages and delicious regional food.
