Green Mountain Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway is at 4134 feet elevation. From here, one can see a nice display of birch trees beginning to show color, as well as a higher ridge of Grandfather Mountain. You can see from today’s main photo that the ridge in view of the overlook is showing more developed color. This is expected, of course, as color development tends to start at higher elevations first. Below, we’ve included a closeup of the ridge from the overlook. The sunny, cool mornings we’ve been having are excellent for autumn foliage, and we may see some good acceleration of color in the next couple of weeks!
