GSMNP.

Foothills Parkway East. Well past peak.

Cades Cove. Well past peak.

Little River Road. Well past peak. Still some color near Sugarlands.

US441 from Sugarlands to Newfound Gap. Still some color near Sugarlands. Lots of snow on top.

Foothills Parkway West. Still some color.

That's about it for fall color in the Smokies for this year!

Gary, could you get up to Newfound Gap? The NWS says there is 36" of snow up there!

Yes. No problem. The roads had been cleared. The only problem was trying not to run over tourists who always flock to Newfound Gap whenever it snows. But, I will say that the mountains received a lot of snow and that the snow was piled up alongside the road and parking lot about as high as I have ever seen here. The snow was still on the evergreens so it made for a beautiful sight against a blue sky in the bright sunlight. Clingman's Dome road was still closed. I drove over the gap into NC and there wasn't nearly as much snow. Always amazes me how different the two sides of the same mountain can be.

I'll head back up today to get some of the shots that I couldn't get yesterday.

Anyone been in Zion recently? How are the trees down in the Narrows? Have they turned color yet?

Thanks,
Jim

And for my 2nd inquiry, anyone been in Yosemite lately? I saw a shot from Michael Frye from outside of Yosemite that looked good, but how about inside the valley?

Thanks,

Jim

Jim, Yosemite Valley was fantastic yesterday (Saturday 11/03) and looked to me like it was still a few days from peak. The trees along Southside Drive were very colorful and the meadow in front of El Capitan kept me busy for a couple of hours. The weather looks good for the next few days so get there soon if you can. The river is also very low and reflections are incredible.

Jamee, nice shot of Jasper's Patricia Lake. Fall colors+ snow capped mountains is a sure winner.

Hey Jason,

Thanks so much! Your shots on Flickr look really great! Your update really gives me a feel for the valley there. These will help me to decide if I go there or not.

Had just got my new 24-70 2.8 II and luck had it that I had to go over near Portland OR for business

So I took off for the Historic Hwy east of there for getting the last glimpse of fall color

Spent time with a super great buddy of mine..he showed me the hot spots...and I'm in love
with the new lens

The day was over cast with a light drizzle going on

Hope you enjoy the view
