Enjoying The Colors Of Fall At Larz Anderson Park

It is going to rain the rest of the week here in Boston so this weekend I took advantage of the unusually warm weather on Saturday by going to Head Of The Charles and then the crisp more appropriate fall weather on Sunday by going to Larz Anderson Park with my friend Colleen (and if you are a football fan be sure to check out her sports blog).

This park is only a few miles from my house and I really don't know why I don't visit it more often.  As you'll see from my photos it really is beautiful!  Such a great country feel yet so close to the city.  We had such a nice time walking around and enjoyed all of the fall colors.

Larz Anderson Auto Museum which has "America's Oldest Car Collection" is also within the park.  There are often car shows going on during the weekends and this day was no different.  There were a lot of sports cars and teenagers!  Fortunately that was just in one area and didn't disturb our leaf peeping!

I have never seen anything life this tree.  It is huge!  I just love the way the leaves/branches come all the way to the ground.  The big yellow tree could be see from all over the park and was quite beautiful!

If you look closely you'll see the tops of The Pru and John Hancock towers!

There were plenty of people there with dogs enjoying the big open fields, people taking photos and people enjoying picnics.  There is also an outdoor ice rink for skating in the winter!

Colleen and I both agree that we need to visit this park more often!
