Brilliant fall color frames the Blue Ridge Parkway near Grandfather Mountain, as seen Friday, Oct. 15. As pictured, color is bursting in the area’s higher elevations, such as those between 4,000 and 5,000 feet above sea level, with more and more color reaching into lower elevations by the day. With cooler weather on the way, experts are still anticipating peak color in the 3,000-foot range by mid- to late next week.
