Say goodbye to summer ya'll! It's good riddance if you ask me. Fall is my favorite time of year. Pumpkins and scare crows are already showing up at the road side stands. Pretty soon the leaves will be changing and before you know it, there will a cozy fire in our fireplace.
Fall is a busy time here in the mountains as "leaf peepers" from the lower elevations come in for mother nature's big show. If you're planning to be here this season, here are some things do in the Brevard, NC area while you're here.
