Daily Fall Photo: October 11, 2017

Beautiful blue skies beckoned this Wednesday, and the morning sun lit up the emerging fall color on the slopes of Grandfather Mountain. Milepost 303 on the Blue Ridge Parkway has a great view of the Linn Cove Viaduct, as well as the ridge above that hosts a portion of the Tanawha Trail. The elevation here is just over 4000 feet, and it’s easy to see that peak color here is quite close!
