Autumn Color on the Cherohala Skyway



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

One of our favorite drives in Autumn is the Cherohala Skyway, which goes over the mountains between Tennessee and North Carolina. The changes in elevation provide different colors as the road goes higher and lower. This picture, from my archives, is from a visit in 2009.
