Spendor among the leaves: fall in Washington

Korean War MemorialAs much as the cherry blossoms dominate spring, fall is the best time to visit Washington.

The weather is perfect, crowds thin and the “other” trees are putting on quite a show right now. It only lasts for a week for two, but so do the cherry blossoms at best.

I’ve really enjoyed touring the past week among the colors. The trees shown above at the Korean War Memorial are really popping right now. Walking up Arlington National Cemetery to the Tomb of the Unknowns is so much easier in 50 degree weather than 100 and the trees are gorgeous. That there aren’t 10,000 eighth-graders around makes it fun, too.
