As beautiful as it is right here in Lake Norman in October, taking a trip up to the Blue Ridge Mountains to see the fall colors is a ritual for many folks who live anywhere near the Appalachian Mountains.
If you live in Lake Norman, the mountains are only an hour and a half away so you can easily make it a day trip if you are limited in time. My favorite town is definitely Asheville which is not only at the Blue Ridge Parkway but where you can also enjoy a visit to The Biltmore or a stay at the beautiful Grove Park Inn. According to the Asheville Fall Color Forecast the trees are just starting to turn due to the later warm weather.
Another fun thing to do is to take the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad fall foliage train ride. Dress warmly if you go. The year we went we wanted to sit outside and even down ski jackets weren’t enough!

Click on this button and up will come this image of my Lake Norman photo wallpaper calender for October 2011. All you have to do is right click and select “set as background”. If you would like a copy of this photo without the calendar, just send me an email.
