On the way to the Olson Tower in West Virginia near my favorite small town, Thomas, WV, Hope and I spotted a view off to the right side of the road, with the those low altitude clouds that sort of look like fog crevassing the hills in the distance. First we saw the many rows of wind turbines and that was cool, but those cloud filled fall foliage colored hills are what really got me to pull over.

Not much of a hike, but don’t pass up the view, especially on a Fall morning. I don’t remember when we were here last, but remember West Virginia turns quicker into fall faster than its surrounding area due to its altitude. If you don’t want to play the guessing game, here is a good foliage map you can use for any continental area in the United States: Fall Foliage Map.
