This afternoon, I headed out to look for signs of the changing seasons. And that would be trees changing color. I though I need go no further than Rock Creek Park, just a few steps from my house. But the park's trees are still mostly green. So I headed for the C&O barge canal and the Potomac River near Chain Bridge.
We parked along the canal (pictured above) with a few bright red leaves. Then we walked across Chain Bridge toward Arlington, Virginia.
There was a little red (it really stood out) and some yellow, but still mostly green.
Then I looked back toward DC as the sun was getting low enough that it set off the crest of the trees above the water on the Washington side.
Over the next couple of weeks, our leaves should reach their peak and fall to the ground. I'm sure there will be plenty of opportunities to get them to pose for me.
