Daily Photo- October 17

Sunset is an ideal time to take a fall drive along the Parkway. The warmth in the light turns everything golden and red. This view of the carriage trails at Moses Cone Memorial Park takes on a burnished quality, making even the remaining green leaves look yellowed. In the area, some spots are still showing great peak color, while others are dropping leaves quickly.
