It's a Toss-Up!  It's a Quandry!

What's your Favorite Season in the Mountains?


Fall is Magical!  The colors change everyday.   This past Saturday, when Danny said "Wow, you have to see this tree I pass everyday!", that's all I needed to hear.  Away I went with camera in hand to get this shot at the corner of Coweeta Lab and Coweeta Church Road in Otto.   Timing is everything - Two days later, this tree lost all its leaves when the heavy rains came in.   I vote for Fall being my favorite season.  But wait....when the first fluffy snowflakes blanket these mountains, then Winter becomes my favorite season.  And so it goes......
