Johnson County is full of beautifully colored trees this fall! These Maple trees along Mastin Street in Shannon Valley Park are a great example. Photo courtesy of Ted Steinmeyer.
The weather is cooling down, the days are shorter and the leaves are changing. Yep, it’s officially fall in Johnson County, and we love it.
It’s the perfect time to take a walk around your neighborhood and take in the beautiful sights, and our readers have been doing just that.
We asked our readers to submit some fall scenes from their neck of the woods, and they didn’t disappoint.
Scroll through and let these photos submitted by our readers inspire you to get out and enjoy the colors and crisp air. (And put off thinking about what you’ll have to do once all those colorful leaves fall off.)
👋 Hello there! I'm Alexis, the audience engagement editor here at the Shawnee Mission Post. One of the things I love most about my work is hearing from Johnson County residents about how we've filled a need for truly local coverage of the community. All the work we do — from covering the planning commission meeting to checking out that new coffee shop down the street — is made possible by our subscribers.
