Fall foliage hits its peak



In an explosion of bright fall color, this maple tree between the F&M Bank and Ingles Supermarket in Washington glowed in the afternoon sunlight last weekend, one of many dramatic trees around Washington and Wilkes County. This week’s rain, wind, and cold has caused most of the trees to drop their beautiful leaves to the ground, however, and soon most trees will take on their barren wintertime appearance.
