Whether you travel spring or fall, summer or winter, the beauty that awaits is more than words can express.

 As the leaves on the trees begin to change to colorful reds, oranges, and yellows, Lake Watauga illuminates their beauty as the colorful splendor of the treetops bounce of the soft shimmering waves of the water, your heart melts at its magnificence.
