For years, my parents have participated in an annual activity they refer to as "leaf peeping."
Every October, they drive from their home in rural Minnesota to Wisconsin to take in the stunning autumn leaves.
Since arriving in Illinois a few weeks ago, I've noticed that the south suburbs have a pretty impressive showing of fall colors as well.
So, I want to know: where are the most beautiful autumn leaves in the area?
Post your leaf peeping recommendations in the comments and help make everyone's October a bit more beautiful.
