    Got up to the Parkway this weekend; the section running south of I-40.
    The color's were just barely starting to show above 5000 feet. Looks
    like maybe another couple of weeks before they really get going.

    Gasoline was averaging $3.20 per gallon in the area.

    Caught part of the Monarch Butterfly migration. Lived here in NC for 50+
    years and never heard about it before. Saw perhaps 200 butterflies pass
    through in the two hours I was in that spot.

    Please keep me informed about the foilage. That isn't too far a drive
    from me.

    Oh yeah, where's your pics?

    We're about 20 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway Peaks of Otter area.
    We'll hit it Friday, but it's been so dry here, I doubt we'll get much
    color. Some trees are completely nude already, and color is sparse in
    others. Driest September on record for a lot of south central Virginia.

    On the hard-drive at the moment. I don't have one of those web posting
    accounts yet. When I get ready, I'll get one.

    Had it bookmarked ... but the chance came to get out of the house (and
    out of the darkroom), so I just went and looked for myself.
