Fall Foliage Festival.
Few people associate the High Plains with dazzling fall colors, but Texas Highways Magazine featured this signature weekend on the cover of their magazine in 2002. The cottonwoods and locusts turn a deep yellow, and roadside shiny sumac becomes a spectacular red. A unique variety of art events and a tour of Canadian's living art museum, the Citadel, makes this a weekend you'll never forget.
