Good Fences #28: Autumn in Cades Cove

Cooler temperatures are on their way- by Saturday our outdoor daytime temperatures are expected to be in the mid to upper 70's with cooler nights in the mid 50's.  I can hardly wait!  How I love the feel of Autumn!


What better time to post beautiful images of colorful Autumn foliage than the month of October? These good fences, although aged and dilapidated, border some of the scenic pastures of Cades Cove, one of the most popular areas in the eastern United States.    


My husband and I have been frequent visitors of Cades Cove during several autumn seasons, usually in October.  These photos were taken during our trip there last October.  The fall foliage was spectacular- never had I seen it more beautiful.  I was in awe at the amazing colors all flowing together, like an autumn quilt. 


In just one week, we witnessed the transformation of foliage color from summer greens and early autumn yellows into a mosaic of gold, crimson, orange, red and scarlet.  Words and images do little to define the magic of autumn's prime show in the Smoky Mountains.
