Since the leaves were starting to turn in Elkins, I had assumed that the leaves in higher elevation places, like Tucker County, must be reaching their peak……I was so wrong! The leaves at Table Rock had barely started to change.

While we were kind of sad that we didn’t get to see the fall colors from Table Rock, the view is still breathtaking.

At any rate, we basked in the sun for a while before heading back to the car and going to grab some grub at Hellbender Burritos in Davis. Of course, I couldn’t leave without taking my photo on the edge, as per tradition…
