Two years ago in October 2006, Patti and I went to the Skyline Drive to see the fall foliage. The trees had not yet peaked so the hills were still pretty green but some of the stunning changes were begining. This tree in particular caught my eye. The leaves closest to the sun were a redish-orange. Then less progressed leaves were bright yellow. Followed by the green leaves on the north side of the tree.
We parked the car at a trail head and walked down to some waterfalls. I love paths through the woods. And, of course, paths make a cool header image for my blog.
I don’t think we will get back up there this October but maybe next year. The colors are stuning. Plus we HAVE to drive through Virginia wine country to get there, which is really what this post is all about.
