Walking through the wooded valley between Nell’s Hill and Roundtop Mtn. is a joy in any season, but it’s hard to argue against fall being the best of the best. A snow-covered walk is fine, too, but sometimes hard to accomplish, even on snowshoes. In spring the beauties tend to be smaller–tiny wildflowers and unfolding ferns. In summer I can nearly always find a respite from the heat down here if not on the climb back up. But fall is simply hard to beat, with its glorious colors and long views.
I visit Roundtop Mountain regularly through Carolyn’s RSS feed. If you have never stopped by her blog you should take a few minutes and swing on over for the fall color updates and pictures…They are pretty awesome this year.
She and I also share another interest…A love of raptors. The past few weeks she has been reporting on the fall migration as it moves through her part of the Appalachian Mountains. The big birds are already drifting into my gulf coast territory for the winter.
