Colors of Fall

The first bit of colorful foliage in Afton appeared on the first day of fall – September 22, but only a few yellow leaves. Since then, fall foliage has taken it’s time. I’ve been impatient since this is our first fall in Afton – hurry up and be orange, yellow, and red please!

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:
