Down Memory Lane: Cherohala Skyway (2009)

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

Betsy and I love driving through the mountains just about any time of the year, provided there are places where we can turn off and enjoy the view.  One of our favorite drives is the Cherohala Skyway between Robbinsville, North Carolina, and Tellico Plains, Tennessee.

We made this drive from east to west in October, 2009, when the autumn colors were very near their peak.  The collage above gives a sample of the beauty we enjoyed, but no photograph can capture the splendor of those mountains in their multi-colored glory.  If you get the opportunity to make this drive during autumn, I encourage you to do so.

    Amazingly, as close as we are to the skyway, we’ve only been over it once. Your shots are sure colorful.
