How many of you are traveling to the mountains this month to observe the turning of the leaves? Where will you go to see the spectacular colors? I would like to leave this blog open to comments on the best places to go.
I'm planning to take a route recommended by author Carolyn Sakowski who wrote Touring the Western North Carolina Backroads. Carolyn has crafted almost two dozen trips embracing both the beauty and history of the mountains. I am going to try the route that begins in Roaring Gap and descends to Stone Mountain and then winds up in Doughton Park along the Blue Ridge Parkway. I will let you know how things go. I promise to take lots of pictures as well.
For those of you who live in the mountains please keep us posted on the fall colors
