Go get your sunglasses because the autumn leaves are blinding....
These photos were all taken yesterday afternoon on the Blue Ridge Parkway between Stack Rock and Rough Ridge on Grandfather Mountain. The colors are at their peak right there, right now. Lower elevations still have a couple of days to go.
This is an album of photos I took at Saturday's 6th annual Watauga River Run in Valle Crucis, N.C. The 5K event raises money for the Watauga County Schools and Zapfitness in honor of a pair of runners, Gwen Tyrie and Andy Palmer, who died a week apart in 2002.

135 runners took part in the 5th annual Watauga River Run on May 27th 2006. The 5k race started and ended at Valle Crucis Elementary school. Proceeds from the race benefit the Gwen Tyrie and Andy Palmer Memorial Funds.
