Randy WilcoxJeff Mullins did this look like that yesterday, or are they still running a scam by not mentioning the year. The photo would've had to be taken early this morning for an October 19 posting for this year.

Carol Warner MesimerThere was a fairly severe drought in this area this year. Leaves all up and down the area are less than stellar. No matter what year this was taken, it's a beautiful picture.

Cathy Cockrell LaneNo way was this photo taken today or even this year. I was up there yesterday and the leaves are still either pretty green or look like they are going to go from green to brown. Beautiful notheless.
