Went chasing waterfalls and fall color with Larry today in Shenandoah NP. This was by far the most colorful spot of the day, so that should tell you something about the colors right now, or lack thereof. The hike at times felt much more like spring. On the plus side, all of the rain has resulted in still decent flow on the waterfalls. So while the conditions weren't extraordinary, a day in the park is not a bad day at all.

Thanks for looking!

Sitting and taking in the endless waves of green trees rolling over the mountain ranges to the west. They're supposed to be red and yellow trees, but fall is hitting late this year.

This is the #4 waterfall of 6 located in Whiteoak Canyon and requires a bit of off-trail trekking to reach it. I was fortunate that a couple hikers were exploring on this foggy Autumn morning as I was, which gave me the opportunity to use them for scale.
