Leaf Looking on the Parkway - October 2012

Chelsea's mom came into town so we used that as an excuse to drive up to the mountains and play tourist leaf lookers. 

It was a clear day...you could see multiple ridges of the "blue" mountains. 

Wooly worm!

Galax.  I used to make money as a kid picking this for decorative arrangements. 

Now some of the colorful leaves...

Chelsea, with me reflected in her glasses. 

Green, blue and other assorted colors. 

We took a drive over Linn Cove Viaduct.  Still remember as a kid going and walking on this when they were still building it. 

In the other direction...

Chelsea and her mom.

After a detour through Blowing Rock for lunch, we made a run out to Valle Crucis to the original Mast General Store.
