Along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Mid-October
It was 31 here this morning, and ice was on the cars. Yesterday I went back to Grandfather Mountain to see what had changed since I was there twelve days ago. The colors had muted, but they were still breathtaking. This was Linn Cove Viaduct, and the area to either side, just south of Blowing Rock.
Just south of Linn Cove Viaduct is the overlook toward Lost Cove Cliffs and Morganton…
Just south of Linville Falls, you’ll find an overlook that faces the west rim of Linville Gorge…
A turn to your left, and the Parkway frames Sugar Ski Mountain to the north’ This is the perfect time to be on a Harley, cruising on the Parkway.
A little farther south, and the Black Mountain Range is visible on the southwest horizon.
Getting off the Parkway at Linville, this chestnut church made a nice spot to just sit an relax.
Thanks Vann…….love the fall pictures…….trees and mountains are beautiful. Lovely little church.Patsy |
Thanks Van for reminding me how beautiful the North Carolina mountains are this time of year. My family used to go up that way every fall when we lived in Charlotte.
I want to thank you for being at Karen’s memorial. I hate I didn’t get to speak to you much but your being there meant a lot to all of us. We miss Karen so much and are trying to accept what God has willed for her. It’s hard but our comfort is in knowing that she is in a better place and no longer suffering.
I also want to let you know how much I do enjoy your emails. I get to enjoy all the beauty of the mountains through your wonderful photography.
Will the leave still look like this today or next week? Great photos btw!
Next week will be too late… Vann
