Carolina fall colors

In this Oct. 17, 2013 photo provided by Grandfather Mountain a woman stops to take a photo of the fall foliage along the bridge over Green Mountain Creek on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Grandfather Mountain in Linville, N.C. While colors in the northern, higher elevations of South Carolina are still emerging, trees are exploding with color at the upper elevations in western North Carolina.
