Seeking Cool Fall Color

We returned to Maui from our Midwest/Chicago trip and it was still hot! So we decided we needed to catch some NW USA color and visit the "other kids" in the cool, damp Washington state weather.

Best color we saw was along the Columbia River while we had dinner. It was was captured in the sunset. The trees had really not started turning yet. A nearby forest fire tinged the sky orange from the smoke. Some smoke was visible as the paddle boats went by. You can see the smoky haze in the distance.
