Gone to Seed

As if a switch was thrown, suddenly it became autumn at Antietam. Temperatures dipped, daylight is becoming more precious, and as a result the lush greens of the battlefield are giving way to tan, buff, and gold. The bulk of the underbrush is thinning out, leaving hay, straw, and seeds in the wake.

As the park turns into a feeder for the winter birds, we realize that fall is upon us.

Come see for yourself, just north of Sharpsburg.
