    Just saw some photos on FB in the Blue Ridge/Smokys group that if not yours were taken just about the same spot and time of day. Kind of crappy weather this week so I figured I'd check it out next Saturday in the predicted warmer temps. I hope there are a few splashes of color left after these next storms, but I think you guys may have enjoyed the last of this year's Fall scenery.

    It seems like on our side of the Blue Ridge, Summer just hung on and then we]ve only had a few days of "real" Fall before shifting gears into "feels like an early Winter" mode. I enjoy all Seasons riding to include very cold and even a bit of snow, but we have multiple freezing rain and Winter Mix days forecast mid to late week and that crap along with hoarfrost and black ice always temper my early starts.

    Anyways, glad to see you guys were able to share a beautiful day together!

    Cheers

    It was a pretty day on the Foothills , little cool but the sum was out , rain coming on Monday so the leaves will probably be gone .
