Skyline Drive in VA. http://www.nps.gov/SHEN/index.htm

Great Falls, Md. (or the VA side of the Falls, which is nearly as good.) http://www.nps.gov/grfa/index.htm

George Washington Parkway- http://www.nps.gov/GWMP/index.htm

All are wonderful places

There is some beautiful stuff just north of baltimore, outside towson. there are a couple of state parks with good color.
down here on the eastern shore we have good color, usually somewhat later than dc and skyline. we also have color in the wetlands and marshes. good to have you in our region.

We have had a wet summer in Delaware. Colors should be off the hook in three weeks barring wind. Then it will be off the trees. That's for south. Heard Lum's Pond is starting to look nice.

I'm spending the day at Prime Hook NWR on Sat Oct 17. It's at the end of route 16, just north of Rehoboth Beach if you're interested. I hope the color comes in by then. The geese are here.
