Except the endless noise from the highway the park was a tranquil place. Many trees were turning red or yellow, some had red or brown fruits, their colours and shape were beautiful. Two old buildings were the places used as general Washington's and Marquis de LaFayette's Quarters, now restored as it was in 1777. It was a sunny, mild autumn day and I enjoyed strolling around the park. The afternoon sunshine through the big trees was really impressive...

..Incidentally, I was a bit surprised at there seemed to be no trails in the park. In the park there were paved road from the visitor centre to the 2 houses for the people who prefer drive, but if this was in Japan or England there must be countless pathways among the trees and across the field made by the strollers for it was such a comfortable place to wander, and they might make the hiking path from the town centre. Really, Americans seem to have little passion for walking! Maybe such passion is for the people of small countries, USA is too big and they have plenty of land so its people have no need to love walking...? :P
