90 Second Escape: Fall Color Comes Early to Hanging Rock
Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Fall Comes to Hanging Rock
Fall color seems to be arriving early in North Carolina. At Hanging Rock State Park, a high-altitude (2,500 feet) outpost in the western Piedmont of North Carolina, typically doesn’t see much color until mid-October; this past Saturday, though, there was more than a splash, with the crimson sourwoods leading the charge.
Here's a 90-second preview of what's to come, not to mention incentive to get out and enjoy the emerging fall color. To keep track of where to catch the best color, check out ExploreAsheville.com.
