Fall Color - Graveyard Fields off the Blue Ridge Parkway

These were taken last week just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.  It is past peak color there now.  Last year I didn't make it for the peak so i was excited to see the rich colors.  This area is at 5000 feet elevation.

Seven Sisters

Lake Tomahawk in Black Mountain with the Seven Sisters range in the background.
