October Fall Foliage 2 Nov 2011, 7:59 am

Here come the Fall colors - tough to capture with the camera.

Sorry I have been delayed in posting the pictures. We have a lot of guests at Wildberry Lodge and they have to come first. I will post the pictures in order so that you can follow the progression. We had a couple of storms that kept knocking off the beautiful lease as they turmed color – so no big splash this year, but still beautiful.

Fall Color at Wildberry Lodge 10-8-11 8 Oct 2011, 9:52 am

Today the colors are really beginning to show. Although I find it hard to capture them unless I zoom in on my camera, you can see them more clearly with the naked eye from the deck or patio.  I have posted 2 pictures today 1 is of the view I normally try to capture and the second is a zoom in to the west side of the view so that you can see what we can see in person.  Have a great day!

Color is difficult to capture but if you look close you can see the reds and oranges
