Fall Foliage In Washington County Kansas

Halloween afternoon I decided to go for a drive to see how the harvest was progressing and to see if there was any Fall colors remaining. While most of the native trees in Washington County are bare of leaves, the maples and several other species that have been planted in the towns were still quite colorful. I traveled mostly through the eastern part of the County stopping in Greenleaf, Barnes, Hanover, and Washington, it was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine, it was a nice way to spend the afternoon.
