Fall in Alaska may be short, but it’s oh so sweet. September’s peak season for fall foliage that glows in vibrant shades of red and yellow.
Alaska’s national parks, boasting beautiful views of wildflowers and birch trees, are great for leaf peeping. Denali National Park’s endless green contrasts with popping fall colors and blue skies.
Alaska’s highway system has scenic roads that are especially beautiful when lined with colorful aspen, birch and alder trees. While you can spot foliage in more urban areas, take a trip to Skilak Lake on the Kenai Peninsula for some of the best Southcentral views.
