Our mountain summer has come to an end! Last Saturday, the high was 38 and we had a few snow flurries during the day with nothing sticking. Saturday night it went down to 25 - Guess it's time to head for warmer climates!

The previous Tuesday we had made our last trip up on the Blue Ridge Parkway seeking color. We had made the same trip a week before but we had a cold spell in between and we were rewarded with much more color on this trip, enough to take a few pictures and share with you. This fall has been very late and not as colorful as other years. Some of it is due to the warmth lasting longer and some due to the storms that have came through and played havoc with the tree leaves.

It has still been a great summer and we have enjoyed our stay here. The area has just about anything you could want shopping, dining and weather wise. The people in the campground are wonderful and we have made many new friends. We plan on making this our summer home starting in 2019. We will be spending next summer in Prescott, AZ if we can find a park to take us for that long. We are currently having trouble get our reservation at the park we want.

We leave tomorrow for Gafney, SC where we will have the Mothership receive its annual maintenance at the Freightliner service facility there on Monday.
