Fall Color, Leaf Gawking Season Lingers

First TraxViews From...

Photo is by Todd Bush (BushPhoto.com)

The last month’s worth of weekends have begun with Saturday’s being a bit on the wet side and Sunday’s being glorious. For those of you who still have the desire to witness some of God’s Autumn handiwork, there’s still time. The temperatures have continued to be a bit above normal and that has prolonged this fall color season. In fact, this past week MIGHT have been peak week for most of the High Country.

The photo featured above is one from one of the top photographers in our area, Todd Bush.

Dr. Howard Neufeld of Appalachian State provided the following bit of elegant prose, describing today’s photo that was taken by Todd Bush on Thursday.

Before the morning clouds moved in, today’s sunrise bathed the landscape in warm, orange hues, enhancing the area’s already vibrant fall colors, as seen from nearby Banner Elk. Foliage remains radiant at elevations in the 3,000-foot range, as the color change begins its march toward the foothills.

I know I’m repeating myself, but this has been one of the prettiest Fall color seasons in memory. We started seeing gorgeous color at the highest elevations around Beech Mountain three weeks ago and yet as you can see on this capture from moments ago atop Beech Mountain, there is STILL really nice color up there.

Speaking of LIVE CAMS, did you guys see Meteorologist Brad Panovich’s share of the Beech Mountain Parkway Cam from earlier this week when we saw a little snow falling up there? Be sure to share this with your mountain loving friends as Resort Cams features LIVE views from most all of our favorite mountain communities and resorts.
