Yes, LAist will go slightly out of their way to step on that crunchy-looking leaf. Thankfully, for this Southern transplant (who used to rake dozens of bags of leaves every year as a kid), red and gold leaves do peep through the palm tree-lined horizon of Los Angeles during the Autumn months. It's already early November and the main indication of the season comes not from the sunny 70-degree weather but from the offerings at Starbucks: pumpkin spice frappuccinos and pumpkin cream cheese muffins. Though the weather remains warm (I've only had to break out my scarf on a few chilly evenings), at least those crunchy leaves abound on the sidewalks near my apartment.

After the cut see Los Angeles' version of autumn; these photos were mainly shot today at the Norton Simon Museum's garden in Pasadena but a few are from around my south-of-downtown neighborhood.

Where's the best place in Los Angeles to see nature's fiery display this season? Leave LAist a comment. Also, feel free to send us links to your Autumn photos on flickr.
