Fall Colors 2017
« on: October 14, 2017, 08:26:25 AM »
I made a drive on Friday 10/14/17 to the mountains and wanted to share my report on the fall foliage.
The drive from Vonore to Tellico Plains while beautiful is not showing significant changes different from what we see around Knoxville.  Driving up the Cherohala towards Robbinsville usually reveals a lot of variation over the differing elevations.  Overall I would say there is still another week or two before we start seeing really good colors.  As usual at the higher elevations the leaves are quickly leaving without showing much color however this is typical for these higher elevations.  I often find that the North Carolina side shows more color and this was indeed true yesterday.  I believe we are still a week or two away from good color.  The drive from Joyce Kilmer to Deals Gap is at least two weeks away but may be a nice section once changes progress.
I hope everyone will enjoy some beautiful fall drives.
