Each year after the “dog days” of summer, the east coast is treated to an array of impressive color schemes. Driving around the areas of Maryland and Virginia can become a real pleasure if you plan your outting properly.
Trees high and low put on a mosaic of rich and deep hue, providing the residents in a variety of neighborhoods the visual experience of natures most colorful beauty.
The yearly autumn is also a reminder that the East Coast actually has four seasons, and that winter will arrive soon, bringing with it a whole new set of challenges, and pleasures, depending upon personal perspectives. As a result, for many the autumn is both sweet and bitter as it signals the start of a leafy pictueques and simulteanously ushers in the pending roar of winter.
The Fall brings runners out to the parks, children playing and laughing in their outdoor communities, concerts and food tastings abound, as the gentle breeze dispatches the faded leaf and floats it to the waiting ground.
Taking a drive to Virginia’s Front Royal, or a casual trip up highway 295 toward Baltimore, tends to make the point quite nicely that the autumn song of the trees here on the East Coast, is something special. So be sure to put on a light jacket, take a long walk, and embrace the splendor of the season.
