Certainly not at the top, but Henri & Elaine Weems noticed the fall colors starting their way down the ridges toward the valley this past week. Top elevations in Nelson County exceed 3500 feet but even at altitudes 1500 feet below that signs of brilliant color can be seen.

Though peek across Central Virginia is indicated to be around the end of October, the highest of elevations already have pockets brilliant color with more each day.

Enjoy!
