This Ain't Vermont...

...This here is western Maryland. Here we don't get a big whoosh of red, yellow, and orange. We get splashes of color, and if you pick your spots and take what Mama Nature gives you you'll come out ahead.

Here's a few snaps from a drive in Allegany and Garrett Counties this afternoon.



Did any of you think I'd let you escape without a few photos from along the Scenic Railroad? Note the reflection of the leaves in the dining car windows.







Enjoy the fall everyone. And remember, Vermont fall colors only exist in magazines. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

Never been to Vermont... Now I don't need to! I've been to Western MD though ... and never saw anything like these...

Of course the fact that it was August mighta had a bit to do with that. ;)

I am determined to ride that scenic railway next time we are up that way!

Great photos! I am from Garrett County myself and really appreciate when we get recognition from people such as yourself.

I need to update by own blog with some photos. Or maybe I will just link to yours.

Those are beautiful but I really like the one with the leaves reflected in the trains' windows. That one is just exceptional.
