|Fall 2012 Leaves in Shenandoah National Park|
Believe it or not, these cool August mornings brought back memories of a camping trip to Shenandoah National Park last fall. This trip is the inspiration for my next pair of earrings. My husband and I were there when the leaves were changing and I took lots of photos that I revisited this week.

Shenandoah National Park has cascading waterfalls, spectacular vistas, quiet wooded hollows. While there we hiked, drove along Skyline Drive, cooked by the bonfire . The park has 200,000 acres of protected lands. We camped for a week and saw the leaves change on a daily basis. When we left lots of leaves were on the ground.

These rust earrings are made with handmade polymer clay by Bay Moon Design and look like some of those fall leaves. I paired the leaves with antique copper floral beads and earwires. The polymer clay leaves are a copper and rust color that remind me of the fall color of leaves. I paired the leaves with antique copper floral beads and earwires.
I am wondering what the fall colors will be like this year. How will all of the rain we have had this summer effect the fall colors? What are your thoughts?
