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? Alan and I are partial to the golden view at Oxbow Bend in Grand Teton National Park. Come join the conversation at the My Itchy Travel Feet page on Facebook. Or send us an email with your thoughts.
