New fall foliage spots include Seattle's Seward Park

New England doesn't have a monopoly on fall foliage. Across the country there are different ways to experience the changing seasons.

How about watching the leaves turn from the tree tops? You can zip-line through the foliage in Colorado. Crested Butte Mountain Resort has a new five zip-line tour that takes you up to 40 feet in the air.

Hiking is another way to see summer fade into autumn. Seattle's Seward Park has a scenic 2.4-mile trail with views of the city and mountain foliage.

And I bet you didn't think you could see the seasons change in Southern California. At Big Sycamore Canyon in Malibu, the leaves start to turn each November. See the sycamores change as you walk through Point Mugu State Park.

In the South, hop on the River Gorge, a 70-person boat run by the Tennessee Aquarium. The ride showcases wildlife, foliage, as well as seasonal plant life.
