Fall Foliage-Deep Creek Lake. I hear a lot of groaning about summer coming to an end, but don’t fret people; fall and winter have plenty of things to keep life on the positive. It all starts with the glasses that you look through daily to get maximum enjoyment out things. Perspective, awareness, and perception come to mind! Anyway, what I am getting at is the simpler thing in life that surround us all the time that may get lost in the everyday things that life deals to us. The fall season gets me back to the feeling nature again and the first event that takes me away is the turning of the leaves. This fall foliage spectacle does have a devoted following and rightful so. The beautiful colors that explode from these Garrett County mountains are simply mind blowing! I took a few photographs last year trying to capture the moment but really couldn’t get true definition and clarity of the experience. Long and Foster manager and master photographer Bob Carney hit a homerun last year captured a real stunner that you can see at his website Bob Carney Photography.
Leaves here in early September are starting to slowly turn having locals believing we are going to see the fall foliage event a bit early. I can tell definitively that last year they peaked a few days before our Autumn Glory Parade which is held October 10th-14th. My guess, for all its worth, is we will see the prime peak in late September through the first week or so of October. That forecast should be spot on because I; looked up into the heart on the clouds, licked my finger, held it in the wind, then waved at a passing groundhog. I hope to see you here enjoy the changing season and don’t be afraid to call me for a real time update of the fall foliage status. Bob Holcomb 240-321-5335.
