Fall Colors at Point Park, Lookout Mountain

A friend from Mississippi posted this question on Facebook last week - "Still waiting on my favorite time of year. Autumn, where are you?"

In Southeastern Tennessee, we were having the same summer weather, with temperatures in the 80s. It was hot! Rain finally came last Thursday bringing cooler temperatures with it. We were pleasantly surprised to see some nice fall colors up in Lookout Mountain when we hiked from Cravens House to Point Park (elevation 2,135 feet). The colors were the best we've seen so far this fall.

As we were leaving for our hike, we sighted the Columbus ships Nina and Pinta; they had spent the night at Hales Bar Marina. We saw them again when we were atop Lookout Mountain. They were heading for Knoxville, and will call on Chattanooga November 10-27.

How are the fall colors in your neck of the woods?
