October Colors

The fall foliage in Rye Hollow was the best in many years.  I am just now getting around to posting some photos.

 A view down into Rye Hollow did not show much color on October 4.

A little color shows up on October 12 on the back part of our land looking toward Walker Mountain.

 The dogwood trees are always the first to turn color (October 12).  Our woods sometimes reminds me of the rain forest.

I love the look of the dogwood leaves with the sunlight behind them.

The red oaks turn later, this taken on October 17, usually considered peak time for foliage here.
This view is west from the top of Guinea Mountain (October 17)

Another photo of the back part of our land taken October 17.

Also on October 17, I took this photo driving up to Mountain Lake---little hazy but still colorful.

Finally, this photo taken last week on October 24 of view into Rye Hollow shows that the color has really hung in there.   Not today though, it is rainy, gloomy and cold for the start of November.
