...continued from yesterday's post Surprised by a Wrong Turn
Once we began our drive on the Talimena Parkway, the trees started out green, and very beautiful. When we reached a higher elevation we saw the color change happen quickly. We stopped to take a small hike into the forest before continuing our way. Later, as we drove even higher in the mountains we reached a point where most of the leaves had already fallen and the remainder of the drive was mostly with bare trees. Ah, but there was the return drive home, so we did drive through all the beautiful colors of autumn again!
Here are our pictures from where we stopped to take a little hike.
Autumn is fleeting, once a year it comes and goes in all its colorful majesty. I hope you take time to enjoy the season!
