The trees at higher elevations along Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway are just past peak now. Here are a view photos taken from Raven’s Roost on the Blue Ridge Parkway last weekend:


But the colors of fall in the valley are still coming in. Here’s a sampling of the colorful foliage at Ridgeside:
