The New River in Giles County, Taken 10/17/10, Casey HigginsThe leaves are vibrant and there’s plenty of fall foliage left for a weekend drive across Virginia.

I just traveled through the Blue Ridge Highlands and Central Virginia this past weekend and enjoyed the breathtaking foliage. Along the New River in Giles County there are daubs of red and gold. Sunday was crisp, clear and refreshingly beautiful from my perch on the river bank.

The mountains were alive with color as we meandered northeast through Blacksburg, Troutville and Lynchburg. I spotted the last of summer’s hay near Farmville, basking in the sun.

If you’d like to see this area for yourself, here are a few places along this route that would no doubt welcome you for a night or two:

MacArthur Inn, Narrows
New River’s Edge, Pembroke
Maison Beliveau Bed and Breakfast, Blacksburg
Craddock Terry, Lynchburg
