We don't get the range of colours in B.C that easterners are accustomed to, our forests are primarily coniferous. Having said that, the yellow aspen against a blue sky and snow capped peaks is a gorgeous sight.

We drove through Tumwater Canyon on the east end of Steven's Pass this morning and lots of trees are turning orange, red, and yellow now. Only a few campers in the Lake Wenatchee area today, so nice and quiet.

That's a beautiful state even without the fall colors.

I wonder though why you'll be amazed with WA.

You are from BC where I bet, it's more colorful come autumn, lol.


I find the fall colors here quite beautiful. No need to travel to Canada to see them.



You'll be happier staying where you are. Travel has a tendency to broaden one's horizons.

For anyone that has border crossing concerns....Monday morning, crossing at Oroville, get the usual Agriculture inspection. Pull over to the left and wait for the agent.

Agent finally saunters over...holds up the passport and observes..."you don't look much like this anymore" as he gives me my passport. Às I hand it back..`because that`s not mine`.

The agent in the kiosk had given my passport to another driver and they were long gone. Long story short...they knew the other driver and knew he`d be back sometime in the day. I was released into the US and I overnighted up on the Similkameen. Got it back this morning at 9am.

Gary thanks for the photos. You have shown some of my Sacred Ground.
I like the yellow western larches further east.

Try crossing SR20 over the North Cascades Highway, Mazama, Winthrop, Twisp all should be colorful and make great stops.

Tumwater Canyon looked great this morning with the cloud cover.
