Snow Flurries below Linn Cove Viaduct

Below Linn Cove Viaduct

Another trip to explore U.S. Highway 221 below The Blue Ridge Parkway at Grandfather Mountain was rewarded with even more incredible autumn color. Also, snow flurries were blowing around in the 34 degree windy weather. You have to look closely, but they were there all along the high ridges, the first of the season. Check out the 2 1/2 minute video below. Check out how strong the wind was blowing at 4,ooo feet.

  1. Glorious! We are beginning to see more fall color here — but nothing like this! Unless we start getting some gentle early rains, I think things will just turn brown and drop after our very dry year. My neighbors’ persimmons trees are beginning to glow orange all over, and the pistache trees are showing real red at the tops and beginning down the sides — but not much golden yellows or bright oranges otherwise….
