Some photos of the back roads of Giles County, Virginia, on Friday, October 19, 2012, where autumn leaves are at peak and stunningly beautiful. This is Mountain Lake Road (Rt. 700) as it climbs to Mountain Lake Hotel west of Blacksburg.
The photos cannot begin to capture the magnificence of the mountains, the beauty of the autumn-colored trees, the warmth of the sunshine, the chill of the blustery breeze, the sound of rustling leaves in the wind, and the smell of mountain air and falling leaves. It’s autumn in Virginia’s mountains and this is the weekend to be there.
