Fall in Valley Forge

Most of these leaves have probably fallen by now 
since my visit to Valley Forge National Park was a few weeks ago. 


This was the site of a Revolutionary War encampment 
of the Continental Army under George Washington. 

The park is beautiful any time of year - 
but most beautiful in fall with so many vibrant colors.

I have come to realize that being a Philly suburban girl 
really does have advantages. 

This field really was like a painting.
I edited with Topaz Impression to enhance that feel. 

In about an hour I can be at the beach to the east 
or mountains to the northwest. 

I can make a day trip to New York City, Baltimore Harbor or Washington DC. 
And the history - there's so much history!

Washington's Headquarters  

I just have to remind myself of these things 
with every traffic jam I encounter.

Valley Forge National Park is definitely worth the visit. 
You can drive, bike or hike through the roads and/or trails. 
There is a six mile loop that hits most of the sights.

It's amazing how close we live, yet how few times I have visited this park. Beautiful photos.

yes you are centrally located for all that history, the traffic is the bitter pill you take to visit where you want. we have that same pill here... these are beautiful...

Yes the close proximity to everything sounds wonderful, but traffic...ugh...not sure I could do that.
