Check out this sweet shot of deer foraging in MacRae Meadows at the base of Grandfather Mountain. They're reporting that cooler temperatures have jump-started the fall color change at higher elevations. Experts anticipate foliage below 3,500-feet in elevation will follow suit over the next couple of weeks. We'll keep you posted as we see more color progression through the Blue Ridge. 📸 by Skip Sickler | Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation ... See MoreSee Less

We received a fall color update from our friends at Grandfather Mountain. "Fall color begins to burst near Stack Rock Creek, near milepost 304 on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
