The Colors.. the Colors... Peaking in Asheville

I havenít seen this many wonderful colors since I did some particularly smooth "Orange Sunshine" at quasi-memorable Pink Floyd concert at Atlantaís Braves Stadium back in 1972.. Itís breathtaking around here.. in virtually every direction. I can honestly say.. itís the prettiest fall I have EVER seen...

Yesterday the traffic was so bad on all surrounding roads that after an hour of fighting it I came home.. Today was a different story and I have no idea why.. The local paper proclaimed that the leaves are peaking this weekend so I kinda figured it would be a madhouse on the BRPW and nearby scenic roads like Hwy 151, but it wasnít bad at all.. I probably didnít pass more than a 3 dozen cars all day.. While the local yokel weatherman predicted rain all day and a high of 58 today.. it was sunny and 65-67! ..

I took a few shots.. thought Iíd share.. The last pic is a colorful shot of some property Amber and I just bought on a nearby mountain....Enjoy.

Just came back from a vacation in DC and surrounding area. We were up at Mount Vernon, Monticello, Gettysburg, Jamestown, and out to Roanoke. When I realized we would be able to take the Blue Ridge Parkway out to the Roanoke area, I was excited because I would finally be able to see what you guys on the East Coast were talking about. Unfortunately, we were on a timetable and had to take the freeways instead. But the trees were truly spectacular anyway. I can see now why motorcyclists in Virginia talk about the area so much.
