The official Canadian flag prominently features a red maple leaf, so Canada would know about colorful leaves, right?

Vermont has more greenery than people, so you know when autumn comes around, this state is one of the best places to see it all as it happens. The best vantage points are the Lake Champlain islands, Burlington and the surrounding area, and the green mountains (or, should we say, the gold-and-red mountains?)

Daisetsuzan National Park is the first and (arguably) best place to know fall is here if you happen to find yourself in Japan. Hiking in the area during mid to late September will remind you of why our planet is so beautiful and amazing and why you should help do your part to keep it that way.

Regardless of where you experience the fall season, we hope you can appreciate all the beauty of change around you, because it won’t last forever.
