Fall Foliage in Charlottesville

Question from a reader: I am planning a trip to Charlottesville to photograph the fall folliage. It is a day trip and I am trying to figure the best place to go.

Answer: Anytime between the second week of October and the second week of November.

This is a drive that I would recommend – go from Charlottesville to the Blue Ridge Parkway and then to the Skyline Drive. Be patient. It’s likely to be busy … I assume that the recession is resulting in more staycations this year.
