Leaves begin autumnal change around Harpers Ferry

If you live anywhere near Washington, odds are you've noticed a bit of a difference this Fall season.

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - If you live anywhere near Washington, odds are you've noticed a bit of a difference this Fall season.

The leaves on trees haven't changed color as much as they normally do this time of year in the District. So, WUSA9 took a trip to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia to see if things were different.

Currently, there's a little more color in the hills that overlook the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers. However, the vibrant red, orange and yellow leaves visitors are still a little more sparse in comparison to their green counterparts.

The dry weather the DMV has experienced the last few weeks and months have impacted the rate at which leaves change. But, in comparison to what WUSA9's helicopter witnessed from the sky six days ago, it is safe to say the area around Harpers Ferry has experienced a visible foliage transformation.
