Following a fun day of hiking, spa, dining and s'mores with my friend Lisa, I roamed around Harpers Ferry which was enshrouded in a layer of fog. The colors of fall were starting to peek through but there was still a lot of green.

The four-mile round trip trek was a success, with views of the sun setting over the valley below.
Heading back down from the ridge through the woods in the dark was a fun adventure.
And the evening ended with the not-yet-full moon, serene as it was rising in the sky.

Grateful for the cooler-than-usual summer, I have been able to get out hiking in the mountains in August, which is unheard of for me. And eager to get my hiking legs back into shape, last weekend I hiked the Tuscarora trail in the George Washington National Forest (nearly 9 miles), and today the Appalachian trail in Shenandoah national park (7 1/2 miles).

Last weekend made it out to McKee Beshers wildlife management area in montgomery county, near poolesville, MD, where there are several sunflower fields that pop out in the summer. Although this field was slightly past peak, still a fine summery show.

Over the last five months I've hiked in Great Falls, VA and/or the adjacent parks/hiking areas of
Riverbend and Difficult Run at least four times, and this is a place that always manages to amaze.
Each season there has its own beauty. Pulling together a few of my favorite shots over the years.

After the cherry blossoms have come and gone, I like to go in search of Virginia bluebells which coat the trails around streams and rivers in Northern Virginia. The bluebell trail of Bull Run Regional Park is usually a sure thing for these and did not disappoint a few weeks ago.
