October 27th - Fall Leaf Report

Wow, what a difference a little cold weather makes! Today, I traveled the Blue Ridge Parkway, including the Linville River access area.  Gorgeous colors, although between Linville Falls and Crabtree Falls, southern facing slopes still have quite a bit of green remaining on thee trees.  Good news, more colors within the next week to two weeks!  Both sides of the Parkway were beautiful.

I also traveled the DiamondbackNC (aka NC Hwy. 226-A) along its twelve miles and 190 curves, there were lots of red colors on this route, more so than along the Parkway.  If you don't mind the "curvy" roads, take this one!

Check out more photos and video on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages!  See you next week.
