Red Leaves

Fall is in full swing now so i decided to post a couple pictures i took today of red leaves.  Also some fun facts:

  • Because of its wide verity of trees, the Eastern United States, especially the North Eastern U.S., is one of the best places in the world for viewing fall colors.
  • Bright red & purple colors come from anthocyanin (an-thuh-‘si-uh-nuhn) pigments, like in maple leaves, are formed from trapped glucose.
  • The leave colors red, yellow & brown are in the leaves all year long & only become exposed when the green chlorophyll disappears in the fall.
  • Fall colors are best when late summer is dry & autumn has bright sunny days & cool nights below 40 °F.

These facts were taken from http://www.lookingforadventure.com/fallfacts.htm.
