Shutdown Is Bad News for Leaf Peepers

Young suggests using major roads or highways to get a peek at fall foliage within national parks. New Hampshire's Kancamangus Highway, for example, is a scenic road that winds 26.5 miles through the White Mountain National Forest.

"This stretch of N.H. Route 112 is dotted with some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Northeast, including towering mountains and cascading waterfalls," Young says. "So even if the facilities at White Mountain National Forest are not accessible, visitors can still enjoy the fall colors." State parks, which were not affected by the shutdown, are another option.

The government shutdown is costing the national parks all over the country approximately $450,000 per day in lost revenue from fees collected at entry stations and fees paid for in-park activities such as cave tours, boat rides and camping. The National Park System hosts more than 282 million visitors per year and more than 715,000 people per day in October.
