Reporting from the Rockfish Gap
Well we indeed get some much needed rain the last few days with some more predicted next week. The temps are now more seasonal and its cooling off nicely in the evenings. (40) This is great news for those who like to leaf peep.
I predict we should be near peak for the Columbus Day weekend. If you need accomodations I advise making reservations now because that holiday weekend is notoriously busy. Be aware there will be many cars, motorcycles and people along SLD and BRP so drivers need to keep their peepers on the road.
Come on out, enjoy the scenery, get some great local apples and home made apple butter and take in the local flavor. Also of note, Waynesboro Va is having their wine festival that weekend. Waynesboro is just west on SR 250 at the bottom of Afton Mt.
