More colored leaves

The blue parachute was one that ended up in the water. They had boats out there to rescue them... Bet the water was COLD!!! This is the river they use for ' white water rapids '.
There are a lot of hills and mts. in W.Va. Any time we drive any where, we have to drive up and down.. We are 3200' elevation..
We drove back to Charleston on Saturday. It is 60 miles through the mts. A few small towns down in the valleys.. The towns are long and narrow as there are mts. on both sides.. most are only 4 blocks wide... quaint white steepled churches and coal mines.... now I understand why so much coal is mined in W.Va........ lots of mts.
We are especially enjoying the fall color as we have not been around it for the past few years. Last year in October, we were in OK. and the year before we were in Missouri , before that we were in Alabama and in '04 we were out in Oregon....but it has been COLD here and we are anxious to head for Florida!!!!
