These are photos from a wonderful walk we took in Rock Creek Park (on the Maryland side) in the fall of 2006. It was a beautiful autumn day, the light was wonderful, and the fall foliage was a delightful sight.
This is the oldest tree in Maryland. It’s an oak that dates back to even before the time of the American Revolution. Even though there’s a plaque next to it explaining this, it seems to be a well-kept secret, because in all the years we lived in the DC area, we lived near this tree and we seldom saw people stopping by it.
