Last Sunday afternoon I went to the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia to see the fall colors. I picked a good day for a visit because this is what I saw.
Autumn colors are everywhere.

Sometimes it isn’t necessary to say too much about your subject. The scenery is simply perfect.
A drive to the mountains near where I live seemed like a good adventure over the weekend. After an hour of driving I started to see hills that soon turned into mountains. When I got off the highway there was an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The morning was getting more and more interesting! I decided to drive on it for a while and every couple of miles there was a lookout point. I stopped, got out of the car and took a good look at the mountains. It became breezy as the road ascended and I needed to wear a sweater as I looked out to see these panoramic views.

Since I also enjoy flowers I thought that these wildflowers were a charming part of the landscape. The events of this day produced some wonderful memories.
