Beautiful Fall Colors in Virginia.

Fall here in Virginia was exceptional. On a scale of 1 to 10 I think it would have to rate at least a 9.5! So I thought that I should share two photos taken the end of October.

This is called “The Peak” and is the most prominent Mountain to the east of me. It is a little over 4 miles away and rises to 2925 feet above sea level. To the right of it is North Marshal some 6 miles away and 3368 feet above sea level. Small by the Rockies standards, but the Appalachians are supposedly the oldest mountains in the world.

This is Fogg Mountain. It just makes it to the 1200 foot level plus a few feet. My farm is west of Fogg Mountain, but runs up the west side to about the 800 foot level in one place. The picture was taken on a hill that is about 660 feet above sea level. This is on a smaller parcel that I own that is across the road from most of my farm. At the right edge of the pasture across the road (below the rim of the hill hidden by the trees) is a road (right-of-way) that runs along the east edge of my property after it gets into the woods. The pasture is a neighbors.

The images posted are reduced to load faster. If you click on one, it will load the larger version which is about 10 times larger so you can see the detail much better.


PS For the Ford 8N lovers, and any other old tractor iron lovers, I have added a link to my post on the N-Board with more photos with my 8N in them.

Nice picture. In northwest MI our property looks simular- hilly. Many do not know N.W. MI is very hilly. Our peak color season was in October. Lots of evergreen trees here for 'green' year around.
