Imagine what it would be like if God dropped a million boxes of crayons from the blue sky above, and they landed on the Natchez Trace Parkway.
That’s what it was like this week, as I witnessed peak colors of red, orange and golden yellow on the northern end of the Parkway near Nashville.

The above photo was taken from behind the scenes vantage point.
The following pictures were taken in the morning hours of November 5th. So the light was hitting much softer and the colors appeared so much more vibrant than my earlier photos (taken in the afternoon) were.
I hope you enjoy seeing the minuscule, yet oh-so-colorful changes, as they take place over these last days of Autumn…
It is evident that we are nearing the end of our colorful Autumn days here in Middle Tennessee.
We've lived in the Nashville area since 2001 — and all 3 of our houses have been situated relatively close to the Natchez Trace Parkway. To me, the 'The Trace' is a hidden gem of Nashville — a place to go when you want to get away from it all and be one with nature. I've hiked it, biked it, motorcycled it, walked it with my dogs, and driven my car on The Natchez Trace Parkway more times than I can count! This is where I share some of my favorite things to do along the Natchez Trace Parkway — which runs 444 miles from Nashville Tennessee to Natchez Mississippi and through parts of Alabama. When I'm not enjoying the beautiful outdoors along the Natchez Trace Parkway, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
