My Itchy Travel Feet | The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel

Saturday’s scene: Autumn in Siberia

Autumn in Siberia

How many baby boomers can say that they saw autumn in Siberia? Alan and I are raising our hands here. While cruising from Vancouver to Singapore on Regent Seven Seas Mariner, we experienced the fall colors of the Kamchatka Peninsula on a cruise excursion to the smoking volcanoes. As you can see from the photo, the color was mostly limited to wildflowers and ground-covers  although, if you look real hard, there’s a tinge of gold on the upper left-hand side of the photo. I have to say that this is most exotic leaf-watching experience of my boomer travel life.

Do you have a favorite part of the world for viewing the changing leaves? Post a comment to tell us where we should be in 2013 to see the fall colors. Alan and I are partial to the golden view at Oxbow Bend in Grand Teton National Park.

Quebec, Canada for fall colors, first week in October, 2013. Amazing!

Alan and I haven’t been to Quebec during leaf peeping season. We need to put that on our boomer travel list.

I’ve never been to Siberia, but your photo makes it look awesome. For Fall colours, I’d have to go back to a small village in Devon, England.

Siberia is awesome although we’d like to see the fall colors in Devon, England too. Thanks for commenting.

Siberia has that vibrant and rich culture and festival. There are lots of good events lined up there next year. We are so excited to be in Siberia this coming March for the Masquerade festival. In line with this, we will surely explore some good tourist spots in Siberia.

Beautiful picture!

New England has the most beautiful fall colors. I would recommend a nice trip to Northern Vermont in early October – a little later in October for Southern Vermont.
