But the drive to get to Pretty Place affords some spectacular views of the autumn color as well. These pictures do not give justice to the beauty, since you cannot feel the crisp fall air and turn yourself around to catch a panoramic view. So add images of birds singing, squirrels romping through the leaves, and a sense of well-being to these photographs to approach the real beauty.
The road to Camp Greenville and Pretty Place runs along a bifurcation of the Southern Blue Ridge Escarpment. The valleys below are as much as 2,00 feet lower in elevation. Much of the area represents a true wilderness. The terrain is not suitable for building, even in today's sophisticated construction industry. For that we can be grateful.
