Adventures with Barb ... chasing autumn leaves on the back roads of Bath County, Va

 Warm Springs, Virginia, on October 24, 2013. Some trees were still green, others were showcasing their color, and some were already bare. Friend Barb and I chased autumn leaves along the back roads of Bath County on a cold, blustery day.

 Add a brisk wind to this temperatures and you end up with brrrrrr.

 Dan Ingalls Overlook at the crest of Warm Springs Mountain offered a view looking east ...

... and the view looking east was of the mountains we had just driven through. I liked the rays of sun coming out of the dark clouds that were spitting snow as I took the photo. The road in the right side of the picture is Rt. 39.

Snow and sleet! Blustery winds and cold temps in the mid-30s brought precipitation from the dark clouds hanging over the Allegheny Mountains.
