Fall color comes at different times to different places. I've seen photos of autumn color in the Rockies already and we won't see color in the lower elevations of the Smokies until November. Wherever there are trees that change color, one can celebrate autumn. I guess you could also celebrate with cider and pumpkin pie. Oh, and I loved going to the apple orchard near Centralia and buying a dozen of cinnamon doughnuts.
