Sideling Hill 0016

We Vermonters are proud of the annual fall display our hillsides put forth. And we can be a little bit quick to dismiss other displays as not quite as impressive. This month I drove to Kentucky from Northern Virginia passing through Western Maryland and West Virginia. Luckily I saw peak foliage and had "bluebird", clear skies. The color was glorious and up to VT standards. I was photographing my nephew's wedding and was able to take advantage of the color for several photos. On the way back we went by the Sideling Hill cut on I-68. I-68 parallels the original National Road and Sideling HIll was noteworthy for the steep inclines and hair pin turns which defeated more than one wagon and later motorized vehicles. Today it is a scenic overlook that is well worth the stop. Some day I will return in the fall at sunrise to shoot a picture but for this shot it was mid-day. But I think the beauty is still apparent.
