Today's Run: First Signs of Fall!

I have not been keeping up with the "Today's Run" photos, but we have continued to run. We ran the week after WV, took a 2-week break while Mom was visiting (no time for it, what with rehabbing Lily, giving my mom the tour and just spending time with her, and working), and we've been back at it since last week. We've been averaging about 2.5 miles running, but we've been doing it one-way on the trails then walking back, which often means we're covering at least 4 miles total.

I've continued to take photos of each run, just hadn't posted them.

These are from last week:

At Great Falls

First red leaves
All of the trees of this species are starting to change color.

This is currently my favorite place in MD. Seriously.

We explored this lake twice:

There are several trails around it

We're hoping to rent one of the pedal boats before they close down for the fall...

Running up the Hill of Death. Gah!
Loving the Prana shirts, Liz! :D
Creek that flowed by the trail. The trail reached a dead end, and we ended up crossing the creek trying to find a trail on the other side so we could head back. No such luck, but still a lot of fun!

This part of the trail reminded me of the Tradewinds Park trails that we used to ride on, back in FL.

These were taken today in our neighborhood:

I swear all of these trees were solid green last week.

This is the parking lot behind the grocery store that we walk to all the time.
Saw this and was like, "Wait, what? When did that happen?"

It had been in the mid 70's during the day for the past 2 weeks. This week it's back to being a more seasonal (according to long-term residents) 90's with high humidity. So no, the weather is NOT matching those colors you see in the photos!
