Fall in Idaho is beautiful as the transformation of the landscape as the summer warmth gives way to cooler temperatures. One of the highlights of fall in Idaho is the vibrant display of fall foliage. Trees like aspens, maples, and cottonwoods turn various shades of red, orange, and yellow. Fall is harvest season in Idaho, with farmers gathering crops such as potatoes, wheat, barley, sugar beets, and apples.
