Author: , September 17th, 2014

Gay Travel: Time for a New England Road Trip!If you want to catch our nation’s deciduous trees taking on a vibrant palette of yellows, reds, and oranges, now’s the time to plan a road trip. Naturally, some of the best drives for fall foliage wind through our beautiful national parks. Here are five trails for unbeatable views.

1. Teton Park Road in Grand Teton National Park & Blacktail Plateau Drive in Yellowstone National Park

Brilliant yellow aspens burn brightly against the backdrop of the Teton Range in Grand Teton National Park. For the best views, stick to the Teton Park Road and stop at Oxbow Bend and Snake River Overlook for great photo opps. Keep an eye out for wildlife — if you’re lucky, you may see elk sparring or black bear and moose nibbling on berries. To make the most of your trip, you can continue to Yellowstone National Park, which is less than an hour away. If you have a car that can handle an unpaved road, opt for the one-way Blacktail Plateau Drive, a turn off just before Phantom Lake, for amazing fall views and wildlife.
