The fall color update for today is gray. The mountains are shrouded in fog and rain. So here are few shots from around my home in the valley to give you some idea of the color change.
Today is just another of the many moods of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I would tell visitors to the Blue Ridge Parkway this when the were upset about rainy days in the park. These are good days because without fog and rain we would not have the diversity of vegetation that we enjoy in the Blue Ridge.
The rain is also good since we preparing to enter the fall fire season. Some moisture now will help prevent fires and keep those that do start from becoming large and dangerous.
