Crystal Mill is a must see. Do not do this drive in your car. It's narrow, steep, and full of rocks. Guides are good. The red jeep is more comfy. Our guide is safe, but his sporadic narration was lack luster.

The road we take you on was originally built in the 1890's. And I imagine just as rough today as it was then. Thanks for the tip on contact lens. And thank you for the great review.

Fall colors and when that event occurs is a very difficult thing to predict. Although we are seeing some evidence of an early fall season. In general, mid-September would be a good bet. That is about the best one can do.
