Yesterday on the Blue Ridge

Look up, there are just a few leaves already turning colors.

Look out and down, there's mainly green to be seen, and some clouds blowing in from the southeast
Look across, and you can see the cut of the Parkway in the horizontal band that ends at the right of the photo...
Look who brought his camera, who had never been to Mt. Mitchell!

Tomorrow, more of the trip to Mt. Mitchell.

Quote for today:

Gratitude can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. It makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.  Melody Beattie


  1. Lovely photos ! We have some trees here that have half changed and some are still all green ! The weather has been sunny and warm with cool fresh breezes ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  2. Barb, I have to admit I do not know the man in the bottom photo. I look at your mountain landscapes and realize just how beautiful your area is. Nice photos -- barbara

    1. OOps, that's a friend from church, Shelly Frome, who said he'd like to go see Mt. Mitchell, and he did! You'll see some more of him later. Sorry I didn't introduce him.

  3. Gorgeous scenery and a nice profile shot of your friend. Lovely to see the fall colors.

  4. Nice photos! The colors are changing rapidly in my area too.

  5. I love Mt. Mitchell. The drive, the view, the flora, the animals. How great to be so near a place whose record high temperature was only 81.
