October 26, 2020 - Fall Leaf Report

We're approaching the end of the 2020 leaf season. This week our higher elevations have lost the majority of their color.  Lower elevations with southern slopes remain very colorful.

This time of year is ideal for a backcountry ride.  The Lake James Loop keeps you socially distanced as you experience the "curvy roads" around the Lake across the mountains and onto the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The path directs you into Little Switzerland and down a portion of the DiamondbackNC ending in downtown Marion's 310 District. 

Our photo today was taken early this morning at Old Fort's Camp Grier by Sam Dean and is the property of McDowell County's Tourism Authority.
