What makes the Great Northwest great? Try Oregon in the fall -- when crimson, orange, and yellow carpets the landscape to lay out a welcome mat for millions of leaf peepers.

Come late September head straightaway for the fabulous Colombia River Gorge, which often makes it to the Top Ten list of fall foliage destinations nationwide. Other prime destinations throughout the Beaver State include Eugene, the Cascades, and the ruggedly beautiful Oregon coast. The Willamette Valley should also be on the list if only as an excuse to visit Oregon's famous wineries along the way!

Even in big cities like Portland, fall adventures await in places like Forest Park. Or, why not try a spooky stroll through the city's oldest graveyard, Lone Fir cemetery, to set the perfect mood for Halloween?

Have fun....and bring the camera!
