Fall Leaf Season


Fall Leaf Season And Traveling In Western NC Fall is in the air and that means the annual pilgrimage to western North Carolina to see the leaves. Just how big is this small window for leaf viewing and how important is it to the tourist economy in places like Asheville, Boone and other towns in the region? We'll ask these questions, find out about the science behind leaf change and talk to the author of a book that explores the backroads of our North Carolina mountains. It's a colorful edition of Charlotte Talks. Guests Dodie Stephens - Senior Communications Director, Visit Asheville Carolyn Sakowski - Author, Touring the Western North Carolina Backroads Dr. Howard Neufeld - Professor, Dept. of Biology at Appalachian State University Add and read comments
