As we move closer to the end of "leaf season" this image should be titled, Mountain Splendor. Colors do remain in the area, leaves have fallen, yet riding the Blue Ridge Parkway was a joy. Southern slopes continue to develop brighter hues while northern slopes' leaves have fallen.
This is a great time to explore backroads. Call us to receive a turn by turn map of the Lake James Loop. It takes the driver from the lower elevations surrounding Lake James north towards the Linville Gorge region, south along the Blue Ridge Parkway towards Little Switzerland ending in Marion.
Enjoy the season! 828-668-4282
