color (14/30)

today's gratitude:  nature's paintbrush and fall color.  today i took a drive along highway 9 and highway 49 to mount cheaha, alabama's highest point.  though overcast and gray at the peak, i would enthralled with the golds and reds along the way.

  18. you DID get those fall photos you wanted. incredible color. I wasn't sure if the color would be good this year but it really is magnificient. and I tend to think the overcast days are the best for the color.
    I like to camp at Cheaha.
