Amazing Maples near Lake Lure
All varieties of Maple are always the showiest trees in Autumn in the North Carolina mountains. From red, to vermilion, to bright yellow, they never disappoint. Just northeast of the northernmost tip of Lake Lure is Apple Valley Golf Course, and near the entrance to the clubhouse is a row of five large Maples. Consistently, every year, they produce the most vibrant colors of any trees I have found anywhere in these mountains. I’m especially proud of this set of images from today, November 4th, 2018.
