2011 Fall Foliage Report, NC Mountains: Week 4

Week 4 was one of those weeks where you could step outside every morning and noticeably see color change from the day before. This has truly been one of the better fall foliage seasons in the mountains of Western North Carolina since we arrived almost five years ago. {wow, time flies!}

In terms of color change, a gusty evening sent to the ground most of the tulip poplar leaves that had changed. However, golden tones were still very present in hickory and beech trees, and the maples are starting to give us some really good color as well in reds and oranges to spice up the fall color palette a little. Still waiting on most of the oaks!

We had a bit of a challenge this week with our phones being out. Thank goodness for e-mail! We appreciate everyone’s patience as the phone situation was worked out and the *ring ring* is back in working order. So enjoy these photos from our neck of the woods, specifically the Point Lookout Trail near the Inn, during the fourth week of fall foliage in the North Carolina mountains.
