Living in Texas, we don’t get a lot of fall foliage. Our trees do change, but we never see the wonderful colors that appear farther north; however, there is a road just a few hours away from my home called The Talimena National Scenic Byway. We’ve known about this drive for years – just never managed to go. This year we decided it was time.
My sister and I often travel together. This short road trip was only a two night stay, but we enjoyed the drive. From my house to the one end of the byway is about 3 hours. The road itself is a little over 50 miles, and the drive back to my house from the other end is 4 hours. It was a lot of time in the car, but we broke up the trip by spending one night at a hotel each way.
We picked a good time to go although a think a week or so later it would have been even better. The colors were lovely. My pictures don’t do it justice, but if you haven’t been and are in the area, I recommend it.
