Sweetgums by the Bay

In Down's Memorial Park, old sweetgum trees turn shades of orange and crimson by the edge of the Chesapeake Bay. The autumn breeze scatters leaves in the low sunlight.

New Trees in Fall

I've been attending tree planting events at Patapsco State Park for a number of years now, and this weekend was the one for this year. Here, we see a few of the new trees in their fall colors planted in a field near the Visitor's Center, while older giants stand quietly in the background.
