Fall Foliage Colors in Gwinnett

I took some time today (October 29, 2022) to enjoy the beautiful Fall foliage colors in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

This weekend has been the perfect time to take in the vibrant colors of Autumn.

There is one particular tree that I am familiar with that turns yellow each year, and this year was no different.

So many maple trees are showing in such a deep red that they are astounding. I was on a schedule this morning and drove past one at a church in Lilburn that was absolutely beautiful. I would have loved to get a picture of it, but don’t plan to pass by there again for a couple of weeks.

Additionally, there was a Halloween witch that made a face plant into a tree and is now an official tree hugger! Check this out!

Enjoy!

My son and I had the pleasure of spending a weekend in October in the North Carolina Mountains, and we came away, refreshed, having taken in the beautiful fall scenery.

Our trip there was a bit early, and we did not enjoy the full color of the leaves, however we enjoyed the refreshing views of those leaves that had already changed colors.

Included in this article is a collection of photographs that I took while on a weekend vacation to North Carolina in October 2009.  The pictures are those that I took in Waynesville, along the Blue Ridge Parkway between Waynesville to Asheville, Asheville, and near Bryson City.  Though the views are extremely beautiful, they are much more breath-taking in person.  Photographs included are those of trees with leaves in various colors, creeks, my son, and my son at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville.  Enjoy!

How the time goes by so quickly!  I can hardly believe that three years have already passed since taking this vacation and these photographs!  My son has asked to visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina each year now for the past couple of years, though due to the expense, it is not something that we can regularly do.  Hopefully, sometime when he is older and we are in an improved financial position, we can visit it again.  It is amazing!

I hope you have enjoyed this collection of autumn photos from my travels in North Carolina in October 2009.  The changing of the seasons is really beautiful, particularly with the varied leaf colors that can be viewed every year at this time in the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains.  The leaves are probably at their peak colors right now, so it is a great time to go and visit the mountains in North Carolina!
