Appalachia in Fall

Driving through the Appalachian mountains is always beautiful, even in the dead of winter. But fall being my favorite time of year and me driving up to mid west Virginia means you get to see them in all their colorful glory^^

Depending on where you are in the Appalachian mountains you may hear them called the Rocky Mountains, the Smokey Mountains, the Highlands (often with a states’ name in front of them), or any number of other names. But when you are the oldest known mountain range, you probably get called a lot of things….
