Weekly Puzzler #136: Red Berries

Fall in western North Carolina has been spectacular, with lovely blue-sky days and warm temperatures. I have gotten to do a fair amount of hiking, exploring a few places along the Blue Ridge Parkway that are bursting with color–some leaves and some trees PACKED with gorgeous, bright red berries. Do you know this tree? Have you seen it on a mountainside near you? What is it?

      Quite possibly the most beautiful tree in the mountais, don’t you think?
