Still some color

With all the rain and wind in the past week the color has faded a lot. But there are still some places where the late color is just hitting its peak, like this hill across the valley from us.  Since I haven't been taking many new photos, a few from last week here, too.

We can see thru the woods again. We've had some lovely days, too, but I haven't gotten out much to get photos.. Posted by Picasa
Always worth a picture; from last week. Posted by Picasa
These woods, taken last week, probably much barer now. Posted by Picasa

From Ellijay

A bit south of here, the Ellijay Ga area is home to lots of great apple orchards. Susan, at Patchwork Reflections, has photos of the recent apple festival, and more mountain fall scenery.
