Cloud Inversion - Lone Bald Overlook

Returning from Stone Mountain, GA, in mid-October, 2006, Ruth Ann & I picked up the Blue Ridge Parkway near its southern end, drove it all the way to US 460 at Roanoke; found excellent fall color - a ranger we talked with said is was best in several years - but also had rain, clouds, & fog much of the way; fortunate to catch cloud inversion at Lone Bald overlook (MP 432.7, elevation 5,625 feet).
