|The view from Balkamore Hill, just north of Stanley, VA.|
The first photo is the one from up on Balkamore Hill - where the bike races take place. I often take that route as part of my drive back from the park with Tessie. It was a nice view with the fall colors last weekend.

It's a pity, but with the rain, wind, and possible wintry mix of precipitation, the leaves will be all but gone when we're next out. But we'll see about that!
Closing out the post today, here's a photo I clipped earlier from the Internet. It's from one of the Skyline Drive webcams, near Big Meadows (which is only four miles from Hawksbill Cabin as the crow flies, and about 3,000 feet above it). As you can see, they're getting snow up there today - the forecast said anything above 1,500 feet would - and the drive has been closed.
Brr! And it's not even winter yet!
