I had off from work this past Friday and went home for the weekend to go to the VT vs Miami game. I drove down on Thursday after work, so it was too dark to take in the fall foliage on the drive down. I returned to Maryland on Sunday afternoon, and was finally able to see all the trees on the mountains and across most of the state of Virginia painted in all the beautiful fall colors.
