Hints of fall color are emerging along the Blue Ridge Parkway, including outside the Jesse Brown Cabin near milepost 273 in E.B. Jeffress Park. During the last several days, more and more trees throughout the highre elevations of the High Country have begun to “pop” with fall color. (Photo by Monty Combs).

This is the first daily fall color post of 2014 from the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation. Photos are posted daily on the Mountain’s website and on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
