10 National Parks to Visit in the Fall

While home to the four highest peaks in Texas, Guadalupe Peak, Bartlett Peak, Bush Mountain, and Shumard Peak, this national park sprawling over 76,293 acres in West Texas also includes such diverse geological formations as canyons, dunes, and a vast Permian fossil reef. Visit in fall between mid-October to mid-November to view the intense colors of the maple, ash, and other deciduous trees that dot the canyons.
