Fall pictures because it's still technically autumn even though we are experiencing record-breaking cold now!

I know this time of year people are ready for snowy pictures and Christmas scenes.  Well, too bad. I still have pictures from last month when we visited Damascus.

The Virginia one.

A whole month has already come and gone. Here are a few pictures from that wonderful weekend. (click to enlarge)

Who is that coming 'round yonder bend?



Oh,'tis the girl in black with the weird hat.




Although the creeper trail was devoid of most foliage, we did see some colorful leaves around downtown Damascus and nearby Abingdon.

Nice trees and a pretty house


Fiery leaves in downtown Damascus

I love how the locals used stones from the river on their houses
I love this tree although it looks like someone took a bite out of it



A gorgeous tree at Martha Washington Inn, Abingdon
Do you see that goofy girl trying to hide?  She's a mess!


Happy end of fall!  :-)

Wow, what beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing them. :)

(Personally, I have already had enough of snow and am thrilled the pictures were of Autumn scenes instead. Now I can imagine the snow isn't real!)

Beautiful!!! Love all the colors of the leaves....unfortunately in tropical season here in Indonesia, we don't have those gorgeous leaves like that, only green. But we do have beautiful colours of flower that can cover the whole tree...well, I'm not plant expert.
It's also the serenity of ur pictures, it all reminds me of peace, may u have it in ur heart as well!
Enjoy!
