Yellow and gold are the colors of fall in Idaho which, like Colorado, boasts some of the most beautiful stands of aspens in the northwestern United States.
In addition to aspens, cottonwoods make quite a show in fall dressed in deeper yellows, along with shrubs that provide a splash of red, orange, and gold seen any scenic byway throughout the state.
Act quickly, though. Unlike the northeast, Idaho's fall foliage season may come on suddenly and, in the blink of an eye, may be gone until next year! But with luck on your side (and a careful eye on current Idaho fall foliage reports) you can enjoy the best that Mother Nature can offer during a glorious Autumn in Idaho.
