Now that Halloween is over and has given us a good scare, we can enjoy eating all the mouth-watering food and witnessing all the deep burgundies and bright crispy reds because fall is here. While the leaves turn crispy and the colors glow, take a fall foliage drive to Patapsco Valley State Park, on Valley Overlook in the Hollofield area right off route 40 to see the dazzling colors show. Well let’s take an adventure through the season of fall to realize the beauty before it dissolves.
From lattes to hot apple cider, apple pies to pumpkin pies, Larriland offers it all. Located in Woodbine MD, Larriland offers some fall activities like pumpkin picking, evening hayrides, and even a straw maze.
Sophomore, Katie Morrogh loves the fall season and how you can smell the aroma of sticks being burned while friends cuddle up under the stars, watching the crackling fire or making gooey s’mores while telling old haunted legends and stories. While fall is still around, jump in a pile of leaves, attend a fall festival with people you enjoy, go apple picking , and definitely get lost in a corn maze. Maybe even attend a few festivals that are still around like Harford Day School’s Arts Festival which includes photography, acrylic paintings and more. Another local festival to attend is the Big Pool Apple Harvest Festival. There you can enjoy listening to country bluegrass music while sipping fresh apple cider.
The scenery of fall is not only magical due to the orange hues at sunset and the variety of stunning colors, but because this is the time to realize what you’re thankful for. Life flies by like the wind, so just take a minute to remember all the places you might have been. For example, Thanksgiving is not only about all the food you can stuff into your stomach without being judged, but about appreciating the people you love in your life. This fall, remember to be thankful for the little things in life and take some time to marvel at the wonders of Autumn.
