Welcome to the September issue of The Traveler
You blinked and now it's already autumn. For us here at The Traveler, as some may already know, fall is our favorite time of the year. We're autumn people. And we always marvel, come the autumnal equinox, at how quickly another year is going by. It's a tradition. But, of course, our very favorite thing about autumn is the color. The sun casts a longer shadow - and the trees!
Now is the time to be checking in with our fall color page to find out everything you'll ever want to know about fall color, from where the best places are right now to see fall color, to the anatomy of a leaf in the throws of autumn.
Here we've got three great feature articles for you. Brought to you by our world network of travel writers, we start with an adventure trek through China's Tiger Leaping Gorge; then to Dagestan at the southern reaches of the Russian Republic; and then back to North America for some great rafting fun in Maine.
The September Travel Writing Pick-of-the-Month is a classic South Sea adventure from one of our favorites, Jack London. And finally, as always, we've got the latest in travel resources, ideas, and bargains for your fall and winter travel planning.
So let Fall begin and enjoy!
A special note for all our loyal readers:

Travel Writing Pick-Of-The-Month
After spending five months in Hawaii, Jack London and his wife Charmian set out in the autumn of 1907 aboard the Snark for an eighteen month adventure into the South Seas, journeying to the Polynesian and Micronesian Islands. Drawn largely from his cultural experiences in the Pacific, this is a dark collection of London's tales about the South Sea. Originally published in 1911, the collection includes "Mauki" and "The Terrible Solomans." South Sea Tales (Modern Library Classics)
