I have to second this, I love that area! I have some great technicolor pictures from a couple of years back.Miles Ignatius said:I go with Guanella Pass Road, about 30 miles west of Denver, in the Rockies. From 6,000 to say 8,000 feet there's gorgeous clusters of Aspens.
Wow. What in the world were you doing in Lee County, VA? You'll get all kinds of weird looks driving through there with out of state tags. I actually spent quite a bit of time in the neighboring towns around Jonesville (Pennington Gap, Big Stone Gap, etc...) while working as a consultant right out of college. Anyway, the area is beautiful in the fall and Jonesville, which is only a few miles from the Cumberland Gap, is one of the healthier towns in an otherwise poor and sometimes rough area.Huston said:However the most perfect fall day I ever experienced took place on the perfect small town main street of Jonesville, Virginia, it was something out of a novel it was so crisp and perfect with big leaves blowing in every gust as the residents raked their yards and said hello to you as you walked past. It was surreal to say the least.
*I had no reason to be there, I was just out looking at main streets in small towns, taking notes. And of the main streets I have observed (and I make an effort to observe many) this appeared to be a picture perfect one. I don’t how it actually functions, since I did not study it. If anybody knows anything about this town, please fill me in. Thanks.

Agree. There used to be a 300' high railroad bridge near Kane, PA at a little place called Kushequa. It was a great place to view the foilage for miles. It was blown down in a storm this summer. Bummer.

Last year I went for a color tour in Northern PA, hoping that it would feel like home... Well I was severely disappointed.
