Nov. 4 Report - Highlands

Macon County

Sharmane OgdenNov. 4 Report - Highlands

Nov. 4, 2013, Highway 28 south of Highlands.

This photo was taken south of Highlands on Highway 28. When the sun hits the leaves driving through this area, it is absolutely gorgeous. There were complete sections along the road lined with pure yellow leaves.

As you drive along the road, depending on the types of trees and the effect of the climate on that side of the mountain, you may see totally different scenery. At Dry Falls, most of the leaves were gone except for a few red clusters. However, going north on Highway 28 the foliage color was fantastic closer to Franklin.
