Report for the weekend of November 17, 2018.
Autumn came late this year, and it may seem that it was over in a hurry. For the high mountains of southwestern Virginia, the show is over. In the Blue Ridge, cold temperatures, wind, and rain this past week have brought down many leaves. However, these mountains still glow under a pretty blanket of umber, rust, and golden shades. Piedmont and eastern roadways are still worth a drive. Interspersed with the green of pines, the deep jewel tones of oaks are displaying their elegant beauty, with an occasional bright red maple or yellow hickory.
This is the last report for the season.
Please be careful with fire. For information about the fall wildfire season and safe disposal of fallen leaves, please visit www.dof.virginia.gov
