Making Priceless Fall Memories in the Pocono Mountains[caption id="attachment_890" align="alignright" width="376"] Making Vacation Memories in the Poconos[/caption] By Deborah Nelson, VRTG Publisher and Travel Writer
A Pocono Mountains Fall might be the best remedy for a summer's "too quick" end. Fall is the season when most east coast residents ponder the approach of winter cold and snow. At the same time they might be making strategic plans to enjoy the last hurrah of summer. A weekend trip to the Pocono Mountains is one memorable way to take advantage of that last bit of warm weather. Celebrate the change from the bright confident summer colors of sky blues, grass greens, and beach sand beiges as they transform into autumn's soft muted colors of golds, oranges and soft reds.
As Autumn approaches, may we suggest different ways to see the Pocono Mountains in Autumn. But before going on a fall journey through the Poconos, check out the Fall Forecast on the official site for the Poconos Mountains. You'll know ahead of time what is happening with the fall foliage, and how to navigate your best timing.
