The area hit widespread peak this weekend and the blue skies continue today making it another beautiful autumn day.  The area around Linville Falls (milepost 316 on the Blue Ridge Parkway) has abundant color as illustrated in this Skip Sickler photo taken at the Picnic Area.

Elevations above 4,500 feet are past peak but most of the region is at its best right now.  Particularly nice spots are the drive on NC 105 between Boone and Linville; the towns of Todd, West Jefferson and Spruce Pine and the area surrounding the Linville Gorge.

  • I loved it! We went as a church trip. It was fun and I saw new things I have never seen. We're going back next year for sure. Lots more are going and looking forward to it.
