I was gonna go do some leaf peep'n today as I slept in yesterday on my first day off. But looking at the forecast while eating brunch and realizing that today might be yucky and rainy.......so Wednesday afternoon leaf peep'n it was.

Heading towards the South Mtns about 1/2 the cotton has already been picked...this field still awaits.
















Business is booming in Fallston!
















Climbing 181 ....the Brown Mtn overlook looked worthy of a quick stop.

The color does seem to be less than vibrant this year but there's still plenty of green down low so that may change.

Then up by Grandfather Mtn the leaves have already fallen...so it's kind of in between peaks in this area, I suppose.

Nothing like a nice little out-n-back run on 221!

Less traffic, more curves and better colors than the BRP up above....what's not to like?

This view really shows how the upper color is already gone while the lower trees are still holding lots of green.
















Might as well do a quick out-n-back across the via duct as well.......

BRP traffic was pretty heavy so I opted for a run down Old 105































And as you all know...Old 105 takes you past Wiseman's View.....

Nice Banjo... 221 looks like a peach.

I am jealous of your back yard!

The Linnville River comes out of the gorge and feeds into Lake James. The riding around the lake aint too bad either....looking back.
















Back up to the BRP on 226A
















Then down to Asheville for a quick stop at 'Wedgeday'
