Welcome to the September 2003 issue of The Traveler - Our Fall Color Special Issue!

We were sitting around the other day, wondering what we could do for the September issue that would be special and interesting for our readers. Then it hit us, like a bolt of lightening - It's Autumn! Well, maybe not officially (and lest we forget our friends in the southern hemisphere where winter is giving why to spring) but here in the north the sun is lower in the sky and the colors are changing - fall is in the air. We've done our best to bring it to you in this issue.

Along with our Autumn Fest, we have three new feature articles, travel bargains and resources, and as always, our travel writing pick of the month.


The Traveler will be visiting Yosemite National Park next week, and we hope he decides to come back and provide us with a new photo album and travelogue - so stay tuned!

Travel Writing Pick-Of-The-Month

In keeping with our focus on autumn and fall color in North America, we offer as our pick this month one of the best guides to autumn with Autumn Leaves: A Guide to the Fall Colors of the Northwoods

A reviewer writes: "If you live in the area bounded by Ontario, Minnesota, Missouri, Tennessee, Virginia, Maine, New Brunswick, and Quebec, or are planning to visit any states or provinces in that area this fall, buy this book now, and read it over. You'll be glad you did, this year and every year. I would give this book a ten-star rating if I could, and recommend it highly. An invaluable bargain."

Fall Color!

Our first annual Autumn Color special! The Traveler loves fall - in fact, it's his favorite time of the year. So we've put together this special feature with some great online resources to help you learn about and enjoy the magnificent fall color of North America. It's here at our special Fall Color Page.
