Fall in the Carolinas

Last week we went to South Carolina to visit my brother-in-law. He is building a new home in North Carolina near Hendersonville. These are photos from the top of a mountain in NC. The true colors don't show up in the pictures. There were a lot more golds, greens and some reds.

This is what the mountains looked like at ground level. The steep, curvy roads almost did our brakes in.

We also visited the Clemson Botanical Gardens. I had a hard time not taking hundreds of photos. The colors were gorgeous.

We came across this fellow during our walk in the gardens. We think he may be a marbled orb weaver. He was huge, the orange part of his body was the size of a nickel.

What beautiful colors! I'm glad we don't have those spiders in Michigan. It is pretty, though.

I've never really been to the the south except the quick freeway thing. Your trip looks amazing. I'd love to vacation there.
