One Last View of Autumn Lake Lure
Even though the slopes of Rumbling Bald Mountain have already turned brown, the trees along the shore of picturesque Lake Lure are still ablaze in fall color. This is explained by the fact that the lake sits at an elevation of only 900 feet, and the warmer waters delay the changing just enough to provide this late season treat. It was 16 degrees here in Otter Creek Valley five miles north of the lake on Wednesday, which was colder than any day all last winter. Go figure.
