We were so lucky to be in Prairie Village (part of the greater Kansas City Metro area) this autumn. According to long-time residents and this article on a local news site, though it's always pretty here in the fall, this year served up exceptional foliage. There is such a large variety of deciduous trees here that foliage comes in all shades, from the impossibly bright gold of ginkgos to the fiery oranges and reds of maples. We enjoyed many a walk and bike ride while the trees were at their peak. Hope you enjoy our photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!
Note: These photos were all taken in Prairie Village or Overland Park, Kansas. Doesn't look a bit like what we imagined of Kansas before we arrived!
Emily & Barry
We're a long-married, early-retired couple who are currently traveling as nomads with no fixed home base. After years of living in North Carolina (Emily's home state), we spent 18 months living oceanfront on Ambergris Caye, Belize, a year road-tripping the US in a Honda CR-V, a year in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and are now roaming North America in our 32' motorhome, Pearl, following warm weather whenever possible.
