Fall Colors in the Blue Ridge

I haven’t lived in a Southeast Fall season since 1996, so have enjoyed the leaves so far. They’re on the bottom of the color curve at the moment, but I got to see the difference while driving through the Great Smoky Mountains the past two weeks. I took a day off from Stencil Nation tour planning, and family things, and hiked out to the Raven Cliff Falls today. I hiked there many winters ago, so was glad to get a look at the colors while walking under the canopy. Not much yellow, but many shades of red. As you can see from the photos, I caught things in transition from green to red. Hope to keep heading out into the woods for the rest of the month so that I can see the mountains change color.
