Update on Fall Color on Blue Ridge Parkway

Here are some pictures taken on BRP just west of Asheville NC on October 4th. This is high elevation so the color should be moving down to lower elevations soon.

Thanks jaded,

Really pumped about the timing of the color this year. We'll be up there on the 18th, and I'm guessing the colors will be great at that time, even at the lower elevations.

So, are the colors turning because of the time of year or because it hasn't rain in so long?

We've had no rain at all in north GA since before mid September; not a drop. Our trees are loosing their leaves due to drought more than season.

I'm trying to plan a trip now to visit Pigeon Forge either this month or November to see the fall colors. Any advice on the best week in Oct. or Nov. to see the leaves changing?

That picture is fabulous. I hope the leaves aren't all naked by the time we get there in 2 weeks!

We got over an inch in Sylva and Bryson City recieved even more than us! We need rain like that every week and perhaps it will happen as the fall cold fronts kick in.
