November is here. The fall colors have already bloomed…or have fallen all over your yard. Pretty isn’t it?
Fall also means a chance to get away from home and enjoy those colors. That means going far away to see what are still on those branches or not. In the northern climes, time is indeed running out. For those southerly, it is happening as we speak.
Since you need a getaway to enjoy the explosion of red, brown, orange, yellow and whatnot, perhaps you should consider the way to get to see these blooms.
Well…I have a few suggestions. These happen to be my favorite vehicles to take a drive to see some fall color.
There are some criteria to selecting these vehicles. First, they would have to be all-weather vehicles. They do not necessarily have to all-wheel drive, but at least to be able to handle any weather event this season could throw at you. It could be the early snow on the ground that would shock anyone in denial of the coming of winter. These vehicles also have to be comfortable to drive…or to ride along in. After all, it isn’t just you that’s going on this road trip. Not only should it be comfortable, but also fun to drive in any climate.
If there is more than you going, you might as well offer up enough trunk space for everyone’s bags. Bags to fill a weekend’s worth of fall foliage and frolic. Said vehicle should also have a huge glass area so you can see this foliage come alive. At least they should enough for the great view ahead. These vehicles should also be quiet enough not to disturb the environment – and they do mean being hybrids, either! Lastly, I will cap these vehicles with a sticker price of under $40,000. Why that much. Road travel should not be for certain income brackets – it should be for everyone!
My list may not be what you are thinking. I’ll own that part. But, I’m sure they include some vehicles that may have forgotten on your list. Not to mention, I have driven them, enough to know they would the right vehicles for the task at hand.
