Today is the first of November and here in the southeast corner of Tennessee, our fall colors are peaking! A few weeks ago I didn’t have much hope for the vibrant colors we’ve had in the past. August was without any rain and temperatures were a bit unbearable for our region. Early September delivered much needed rain and October sweetened the deal with cooler temperatures.
After returning from a trip to Arizona the weekend of the 22nd, I noticed an impressive change. I took a few photos around our house and across the street. Early morning sunlight illuminates the gold leaves toward the tops of the trees.
Earlier in the week I drove around our mountain town a bit before sunset. The local golf course is always a great photo stop and it didn’t disappoint me this year either.
Next stop was Signal Point. I arrived just in time for a splendid sunset. It was so peaceful.
The following day Cupcake Girl and I walked up her neighborhood street and captured more beauty!
This weekend we will be taking a color cruise on the Tennessee River. The Captain and I are looking forward to this adventure and I hope to bring you more fall beauty around Tennessee!
