Autumn in Asheville and Black Mountain 2016
Much has been written about the effect of the drought in the Mountains when it comes to Fall colors. If my visit to Asheville and Black Mountain on October 27th is any indication, the effect will be minimal. What can be affected is the timing of the changes, and my observations seem to support that colors are arriving about a week later than average this year.
I drove through the Sunset Mountain district above The Grove Park Inn, and found breathtaking vistas from every vantage point.
Stopping in Black Mountain on the way home found dark skies from an approaching storm near sunset, which always makes for interesting contrasts.
