Fall is a beautiful time of year – when all the trees show their true colors.  Be sure not to miss the show early signs are the Dogwoods with their burgundy leaves, then the maples start the show.

Where to go?  E-Corps Naturalist shares some of her favorites;

  • Great Smoky Mountain National Park a ride through Cades Cove an hour before dusk should be on everyone’s bucket list, just remember higher elevation mimics higher latitude.  Also note GSMP is the most visited national park and October is a peak visitation time. E-Corps views
  • Blue Ridge Parkway Moses Cone Park is awash with color and off the beaten path. see our video
  • Linville Falls for the more rustic outing – (pit toilets) but the sites are well worth the trip. Some sights
  • Want some other suggestion just email Karan@e-corps.org.

What causes the change?  Fnd out from the US Forest Service.
