September in the Mountains

I've been living in North Carolina for almost three months now, and haven't really missed my home state much, if at all. But now that summer is coming to a close, I am wishing I had the mountains close by like I used to. September is a good time to get out and take in the mountain outdoors. With the Appalachian summer storm season at its end, skies tend to be clear more often this time of year. The late afternoon sun creates great high-contrast scenes of saturated deep blue sky over striking green hues of the tree-covered mountains. Couple this with the more tolerable temperatures and the thinning insect populations, and you have an outdoor environment that will stick in your memory once you experience it. While I am planning to make a trip back home in October when the fall colors are at their peak, regrettably I will have to miss this year's pre-fall September show of blue and green.

Here are a few scenes from summer's final days in West Virginia, from Septembers past.
