Fall

Foot bridge over the C&O Canal.

Wide Water Gap near Angler's Inn.

Fall is here and if you want to see the colors up close, a good way to do that is to go walking on the C&O Canal. During the week, traffic on the trail is pretty light. Couple it with cooler temperatures, some breezes, and rain and you'll end up with lengthy gaps between the people you pass. In another week or so, the colors should be especially prolific. Due to drought this year, though, they won't be a vibrant as years past nor is it likely they'll last long. Still, it's one feature to like about living on the East Coast.

Contrast early fall with mid-spring by going back to these pictures I took in May.

Thank you! It's a lovely area just outside of Washington that I enjoy. If you ever venture to America, add it to your list of places to see!
