Sept. 23, 2013, Second Overlook Mt. Jefferson State Natural Area

The season’s leaves are just giving us a hint of the fall colors yet to come. There are a few trees that have started changing colors as the cool air shimmers with the sounds of katydids. Much of the forest still remains a deep hardy green. But, along the park road and at the overlooks you can easily find some brilliant yellow leaves decorating the vast scenic views from Mt. Jefferson.

For more information about visiting this location, go to North Carolina State Parks and Ashe County Chamber of Commerce.
