Turning LeavesMerrillee here hoping that these photos will give you even a little taste of the spectacular beauty we saw this past weekend in the mountains of North Georgia. The following photo was taken from the top of Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia. I barely had time to snap this picture before the clouds rolled in and obscured the view.
I took the photo below just as the clouds started to cover the top of the mountain. A few minutes later, a sea of white lay between us and the colorful trees below. If we had gotten there five minutes later, I wouldn't have been able to see the fantastic colors. On a clear day, you can see Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee from the top of the mountain. There is a lesson in these photos. Take advantage of an opportunity when it first presents itself. If you wait, the opportunity may be lost.
I took this last photo from the deck of our friends' house. They live near the top of a road that winds up the side of a steep hill. Making the trek to the top yields a fantastic view of the mountains and the lake. I took another lesson away from this experience. Taking the high road is better in views and in life.
Where do you like to go to see fall foliage?
