The view from the top of Grandfather Mountain is gorgeous this morning with low-lying clouds to our east and south. The surrounding landscape has really come alive with color this week as illustrated in this photo looking toward Grandmother Mountain. (Photo by Landis Taylor)
Fall color really seemed to pop yesterday evening after the overcast weather moved out of the area. This week and the coming weekend should be beautiful in the NC High Country. Colorful routes right now are Hwy 105 from Boone to Linville, Hwy 181 from Linville to Newland and Hwy 321 from Boone to Blowing Rock.
