“He changes times and seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding…” Daniel 2:21
Can’t we all agree that when autumn arrives it brings with it a sense of refreshment and renewal? The air is more crisp (although we have yet to experience that here in the Deep South), the soup is more hearty and the colors more vibrant…all orchestrating together to usher in the season I love! Here in our Appalachian Foothills, there is no shortage of fall foliage…all within an hours drive! Maybe you’ve heard of places like Little River Canyon? What about DeSoto State Park? And the world famous Berry College? Yes, those places are all right here in our backyard…and today, we have dipped into the archives to bring you Autumn In Our Appalachian Foothills! Sit back and enjoy the ride!
