It seems kind of strange to be talking about Fall colors when we're currently looking at temperatures in the low to mid 90s, but here we are, less than a month before the Autumnal Equinox, or first day of Fall.
As I mentioned in a post a few weeks ago, my dad thought that the ride down Route 2 from Rockford all the way to Dixon offered up some of the best, if not the very best, fall colors viewing in the entire country. I agree, but there are a few other spots in our state that are pretty awesome once we hit fall.
As a kid, I dreaded the first day of September. Even though my birthday comes at the end of the month, I never looked ahead to that, I was too busy lamenting the end of summer and the beginning of school. My dad felt differently.
