September in the Blue Ridge Mountains

 Humpback Rock area of the Blue Ridge Parkway five miles south of Afton Mountain. This recreated mountain farmstead, hiking, and picnic area is popular during October's leaf season.

Humpback Rock Farm at MP 5.8 along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Early color can be seen in black gum, dogwood, and sassafras trees as well as the flaming red Virginia creeper. This weekend will be cold in the mountains with daytime highs in the 50s and overnight lows in the 30s/40s. It's sweatshirt weather.  :)
