Daily Photo: October 5

The sun is back! We saw lots of blue sky and sunshine today. It was a beautiful day, and the perfect opportunity to enjoy the increasing fall foliage. Today’s photo is from the community of Fleetwood in Ashe County. This stand of trees is showing vibrant color against a clear blue sky, while most foliage in the immediate elevation area is still green.
For a detailed report on fall color, including specific tree types and colors, see this week’s Fall Color Report from Appalachian State University: http://biology.appstate.edu/fall-colors/fall-color-report-week-october-4-2015
Tomorrow, we’ll head up to higher elevations to see if the peak has arrived along with the sun!
