Default Update from Sunday Oct 20

Diane and I woke to a beautiful CAVU Sunday morning.
We decided to go to the Runway Cafe at GMU for lunch.
The Collings Foundation was there. Big croud of families with kids eating lunch and looking at the planes which does my heart good.

I set up a gratuituos pic of my RV with the 'stang.

Afterwards, we went for another leaf flight. Diane took a pic of the same rock I posted earlier so you can see the 1 week change. Still red, gold, brown. Yellows have not popped yet.



The mustang is on the left.......

Philip,
The Burger Basket in Andrews is great; you will enjoy. Leaves should be nice by then.

Went flying over eastern Ky today. Nothing spectacular as far as colors. Nice restaurant at old K22, now KSJS...Cloud 9. Great flying weather.

Came home frm Stanly Conty KVUJ to Dahlonega, GA over Ashville. Colors on the higher peaks were pretty good. Brasstown Bald, highest point in GA. is just starting to turn. Lowere elevations just starting to turn yellow.

I'd say another week around the area for really bright colors. But it was 38 here at my house this morning and that's going to get it going quicker.

We finally got a frost a few days ago. I have not flown since then but I did notice the color changing down at low altitude (where I was driving) was starting to show yellows.

This coming weekend and the following should be the trick. Sat and Sun weather is supposed to be good too.

Just watch out for the EAA B-17 we're hosting at KAVL this weekend.

Same thing I saw from the air around Andrews this past Saturday. Still lots of green, with just a bit of yellow mixed in. Still had a fun flight even without the colors though.

Here are some of the photos my brother took on the flight:

Yes, good white water rafting there in the 90's when we lived in Norcross and Winder GA. My wife lost her wedding ring set in the cold water, so let us know if you see it glistening.
