One of the best things about Autumn is the changing of the leaves. It is absolutely stunning to see the colorful canvas against the backdrop of a beautiful blue sky!

Plenty of sunshine and cool temperatures will bring about brilliant colors.

The lovely orange and yellow color leaves are a result of chlorophyll, the agent that gives leaves their green color, breaks down.

If you want to do some leaf peeping below is a map to let you know where to go to view the leaves when they are at their peak.

If you are looking to leaf peep in central Maryland this weekend, you will find that the leaf changes are patchy but in western Maryland the leaves are near peak or at peak.
