This is one of those times when I have to say "It's better to be an hour early than one minute late!" Why? The leaves wait for no man. There is no place like Virginia in the Fall, and with 35 Virginia State Parks, you have the opportunity to see the leaves do their thing from the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean!
Fall brings us enthusiasm, it invigorates us at the end of long weary year. There is a comfort in knowing that all things come to an end, and the change of seasons revives us, as we know there is something new just around the corner.

The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
