The poetry of the earth is never dead. ~John Keats
The ending to a picture perfect day. The high was 50 followed by a low of 28. The sky was clear and blue all day long. It was a great day to finally get out of camp and check out the color in the lower elevations, but you will have to check back for those photos. The lower elevations are exploding in color. I guess that explains why I have heard stories of two hour rides from Newfound Gap road to the visitor center. This is the time of year I am happy to be on the mountain and not have to depend on my car.
