Trees were bursting with the best fall color Washington has seen in years this past weekend.
The region is in “high color” as of Monday, the Foliage Network reports. Given the rapid leaf drop (and a stormy Tuesday forecast) this past weekend was the best moment to enjoy the season before the trees go bare. Next weekend, we rake.
Thanks to everyone who shared their fall colors with us!
