Catching up on posts! These were taken in mid October, and look how green it was here then! I’m so used to living in my college town in the Shenandoah Valley where fall comes when you’d expect it to, so now that I’m home…not in the mountains…I felt like fall was never going to show itself. I went on a hiking trip in the Shenandoah last week expecting the leaves to be beautiful (I read that it was supposed to be peak time for color), but it was mostly brown. It was still wonderful to be “home” again. I miss it. My mom, siblings, and I also went to a persimmon and pomegranate festival in the mountains. We got to try lots of delicious varieties of persimmons as well as some wines (persimmon, plum, rosehip). How have you been celebrating fall?

And here are some pictures from that hike I spoke of. The trails are Hawksbill (highest peak in the park) and Cedar Run in Shenandoah National Park.
This last photo is very Halloween-appropriate, wouldn’t you agree? 🙂
