Viewing the entries in the Fall Colors Contest got us thinking about actual fall colors and where to find them. In the Northeast, it's easy to find spectacular beauty right outside your front door, but here in the Northwest -- known for year-round greenery -- it's a little harder to find such inspiration.
Over at Fine Lifestyles, they listed seven places to get inspired by nature's palette, no matter where you live. Here in Oregon, their suggestion was along the historic Columbia River Highway, which takes you along the Gorge and passes by Crown Point and Multnomah Falls.
If you live in a part of the country where fall color is harder to come by, is there a favorite place that you go for inspiration?
