During the last week of October, I once again took a trip out to the Blue Ridge Mountains, to see the fall foliage. Below are two photos taken at the same location, Craggy Gardens, elevation above 5000 feet, on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. I love the bright pink rhododendrons and the green foliage in the spring. But I also love the red berries in the fall.
What do you think? Do you prefer the spring or fall (or maybe you like summer or winter) best? Where is your favorite place to see the seasons change?

Visitors come to see vistas, rocky crags, and the glorious display of wildflowers. In the fall, bouquets of bright red berries adorn the mountain ash and in early winter the Craggies twisted trees, often encased in ice, sparkle in brilliant sunshine. It is a lovely place. It is a unique environment.
