The lacy leaves and wandering branches of a Japanese maple lend drama to the grounds of the Biltmore Estate near Asheville, North Carolina. Built in 1895 by George Washington Vanderbilt, the Biltmore is the largest private residence in the United States and includes more than 75 acres (30 hectares) of manicured gardens.

Autumn paints the valleys of Denali National Park in Alaska, home to more than 650 species of flowering plants—and many animal species. Fall brings changing patterns of color and motion to much of the United States, which covers lands from the tropics to the Arctic.
