Fading fall colors at the Riverwalk footbridge, one week apart
Two views of the Mary Early footbridge and old railway bridge over the Charles, seen from the south side of the Bleachery waterfall. They were taken almost exactly eight days apart: The first on Oct. 14 (Saturday) at 11:10 am, and the second this morning at 10:40 am. There are not many sugar maples in this spot, so the transition goes from late summer dry green to faded yellows and tans. In one week's time there will be more yellow, and probably a few bare trees as well.
