I must have a Rockwellian ideal image of fall in my brain.* I must think that it should all be about those showy bright leaf changers... Well in my neck of the woods, that is not it at all.
On Saturday, we went to Cumberland, Maryland "The Mountainside of Maryland" in search of fall. We decided to go to the C&O Canal & specifically the Paw Paw Tunnel. We had a nice time hiking & the drive was nice as well.
This photo was taken in West Virginia on our way home.
The C&O tow path at a particularly fallish spot.
So we stopped to capture the moment.
On Sunday, Jacob & I went to a local Fall Festival - with every other resident of our county. The weather was perfect so who could blame us.
"I can tell we are going to have some fun!"
"Next year I will be able to join the big kids jumping in the hay!"
"The Great Pumpkin."
Look at my big boy standing tall. :o)
After our fun was over, I decided to go to the farmer's market that is also located at this farm. That is where I slid down hill hurting my knee. (Which is begining to feel better - thanks so much for all of the well wishes.)
* I "grew up" mostly in Central Texas where this is not the image of fall, so I am not sure where my theory began.
