The blazing colors of fall

Halloween is just around the corner, and that can only mean one thing: now is a great time to check out the gorgeous fall foliage.

Not sure where to go? Correspondent Thomas Caywood gives some tips in today's Globe West. Here are some of his picks:

Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston - the best view is from the summit of Tower Hill, about a 10-minute hike from the parking lot.

Mount Pisgah in Northborough - the highest point in town. On a clear day, you might not be able to see forever, but you can see the Prudential Center downtown.

Hopkinton State Park - no parking fees after Labor Day, and plenty of picnic tables.

Do you have some great foliage photos? We'd love to see them. Send them to Erica Tochin at and we'll post some of them on this blog!
