The View from Mt. Olivet Church

Syria, Virginia

This Methodist Church in Madison County overlooks the Robinson River. I stopped there yesterday to eat a snack and take a few pictures. 

The trees are starting to change color. At higher elevations nearby, the fall foliage is at it's peak, and Skyline Drive is in full glory!

Some people were trout fishing in the river, which is shallow and clear at this point.
