Charles City Off The Beaten Path: 18 reviews and 18 photos

by matcrazy1

We stopped in the middle of a pretty broadleaved forest when we drove along scenic route 5 from Richmond to Charles City. I didn't want to get bogged down after the rains a day before, so I only took a picture there. It was in the middle of October, unfortunately about 2 weeks before the peak fall colours of leaves. I caught it later in Great Smoky Mountains National Park (North Carolina/Tennessee).

During my southern trip I used to watch The Wearher Channel (TWC) in my motel/hotel room each night. What a surprice! They showed approx. time of peak fall colours on the U.S. map.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
