Okay, so when I was younger, I used to never want to admit that I was wrong. Well, I learned that honesty out-weighs pride, so let me admit this:
I WAS WRONG! THE COLORS ARE AMAZING, AND YOU HAVE TO GET UP HERE RIGHT NOW TO SEE THEM!!!
Whew. That felt good.
Here are a couple teasers for you if you can't make it, or to light a fire under your bum to make the drive.

So I drove to Houghton yesterday. I was unsuspecting of the color change as I endured the tunnel of trees. Holy eye orgasm, Batman. It was like a time warp back through the 80's. The hot pink, electric tangerine, neon yellow and florescent magenta were about all I could handle without a sensory overload.
Plus, these colors just surround you. It's not like a spot here or there.
Now you're going to drive through Houghton and up most of the Covered Stretch and be all, "Amanda. We didn't see any neon explosions like you said." Well, it's all in that last 10 miles, friend. So worth it.
The Houghton area is more of a royal theme. Gold, crimson, plum, ruby and copper. Still beautimous in its own right.
But here's one thing you are lucky about. I brought a recording device with me on the drive just in case. So I even have a video for you.
Okay, that's my good deed for the day. What will yours be?
