October Wallpaper Calendar

Morning light and fall color from Pounding Mill Overlook on the

I didn’t shoot a lot of desktop-worthy fall color last year, so I had to go back two years for this one.  While it isn’t “fall leaves and acorns” it is nevertheless color in the sky that you just don’t get too often over the summer.  Not until the humidity blows off do you get these vibrant colors in the mornings.

Pounding Mill Overlook is on the Blue Ridge Parkway just south of the SR 276 intersection, so whether you are in Brevard or Waynesville it is an easy sunrise destination, especially in the fall when sunrise is at a very civilized time.  People don’t believe me when I say that the best color is often 30 minutes or more before sunrise.  Why?  Because people don’t usually start looking that soon, and because it is still really, really dark.  But the color is there, you just have to be ready for it.

Kathy & I have a little bit of fall travel planned, although we will mostly be making day trips. I’ve used up nearly all of my vacation time for this year, and we’re holding onto what few of our vacation dollars are left until we can close on our house.

  1. Those colors certainly do signify October, especially with that abundance of orange. I’ve got about 13 days of vacation, half of which will be used at the end of October for another trip to Mexico. The rest, I suppose that I might use around Christmas time, though I have no travel plans in mind. Who knows, though. I certainly don’t. 🙂

    1. You’ve got to be really looking forward to that Mexico trip. I know how much you’ve been preparing. I have no complaints about the use of my time this year other than the fact that there’s still a lot of year left! But not to worry, we’re making plans for January, assuming we get moved by then! 🙂
