Leaf Season on the Diamondback

The Diamondback in fall colors
Cruise along the Diamondback.

Fall colors are just beginning to pop out along the Blue Ridge Parkway and what we like to call The DiamondBack (226A). The higher elevations near Switzerland Inn and neighoring Spruce Pine, NC will be seeing the first spots of color this weekend.

The Inn, at Parkway Milepost 334, is a great spot to take in the panorama of deep reds, crisp yellows and fire-bright oranges as the colors begin to fill the trees along the Parkway.
