Autumn is in the air - Smell the Colors

By: Roz Barnett

Autumn is a preferred time of year by many people to come to the mountains of Murphy, North Carolina to see the beautiful color of the changing leaves. The colors are so vivid with orange - the color of pumpkins that gets you in the mood for pumpkin-carving, and you know Halloween, haunted houses, trick-or-treating is just around the corner.

Another leaf color that you would find here in Murphy is the candy apple red color - it reminds us to go to the local community centers in this area and get ready to bob for apples. Oh what fun!

Yellow leaves remind us that soon that the mornings are cool and the days are filled with sunshine - but ohhh those nights - better put a log in the fireplace and let the cheery yellow/orange colors lull you into a peaceful sleep. Snuggle under those blankets.

Brown leaves let us know to get ready for the hayrides in the area, and then to get our rakes out - soon the big leaf piles will let everyone run and jump in the pile of leaves. Kids of all ages and adults really like doing this.

There are so many chances to take pictures and videos of these beautiful trees with their vivid leaf colors here in the mountains of Murphy, North Carolina and the surrounding areas. It's free, it's fun, and you can make an entire day or week-end or week of visiting the western North Carolina area this Autumn. There are many areas in the mountains that you definitely do not want to miss if you are interested in seeing the best autumn foliage.

Great Smoky National Park - has an entrance in Cherokee, North Carolina as well as two cities in the adjourning state of Tennessee, this national park boasts some of the best views of fall leaves that change to bright and beautiful colors like red, brown, yellow, orange, and purple. According to tourists, the best time in the fall to see the leaves at the peak of their beauty is mid-October. Park admission is free, so if you're looking for a free activity to do, grab a friend, your best camera and a brown bag lunch and head over to the Great Smoky National Park this October.
