During the fall season, the North Georgia Mountains offer a nice retreat for Atlantans who are looking for an escape from the city or a weekend getaway. It is a beautiful drive and you can look for beautiful mountain real estate while you are out and about.
Getting outdoors to enjoy beautiful autumn days filled with songs around the campfire, deliciously sinful s’mores and colorful leaf-filled trees is the perfect fall pastime. If one of your favorite fall activities includes retreating to the mountains to search out ideal leaf viewing locations, then check out “Leaf Watch 2010” on www.GeorgiaStateParks.org.
Launched by Georgia’s State Parks and the Georgia Forestry Commission, Leaf Watch 2010 tracks fall color throughout October and November as it moves through Georgia and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Whether you’re looking to go hiking, canoeing, and camping or to just sit in a rocking chair and enjoy the view, Leaf Watch 2010 has advice on where to find the most vibrant color this fall.
New this year is a webcam at Black Rock Mountain State Park. The webcam will give viewers a glimpse of the autumn color as it moves across Georgia. For more in depth information, you can call on the Georgia Forestry Commission’s expert foresters who will advise travelers about color, specific tree species and the weather’s effect on leaf watching.
