While driving home to Ohio from the Washington, D.C. area in late October, I stopped at Sideling Hill in western Maryland to snap the autumn scene above -- my view is to the east. Vibrant reds and golds of sugar maples, scarlets and coppers of oaks, yellows of hickories, and bronzes of beeches lit up the landscape. Mid to late October is typically when the fall colors peak in the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains. Fog hanging in a distant valley accents this attention-getting scene.
