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 enthrall 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 as the tree prepares for winter.The second reason is maple trees.They are particularly susceptible to the season change and produce the intense reds and vermilions that a feature of the fall foliage.
Can it be worthwhile to travel 4,000 miles to see leaves on trees? Unquestionably it can. Especially when combined with the scenic trains, welcoming towns and villages and delicious regional food.
