Beginning the day on the Blue Ridge Parkway, you need to be here! Weekend weather forecast is warm with late afternoon showers.
Today's Blue Ridge Parkway drive was glorious! The ideal temperature, 71 degrees with sun and a little breeze. This image was taken at the North Cove overlook, showing the Orchard at Altapass in the distance and some lovely red poisonous mushrooms. Tempting! ;)
Predicting when the leaves will change color. It's a feat of nature explained by a scientific process, that can be a little tricky. Our range of the Blue Ridge drastically varies when it comes to elevation. That's a good thing!
