Yes, it's Autumn along the Blue Ridge Parkway. And the colors are gorgeous again. We rarely have to do more to entertain our guests than feed them a hearty breakfast and drive through the mountains.
On one particular day the long-range views were as good as I've seen in years. Perhaps it was due to the heavy rains we had recently. Or the chilly Autumn weather. But whatever the reason, it was wonderful to see distant peaks frequently obscured by the blue haze that names our Blue Ridge Mountains. Gorgeous fluffy clouds filled the sky as we enjoyed our mountains once again. (You may want to click to enlarge the photographs)
Looking Glass Rock stands out prominently
The clouds cast shadows on the mountains.
No matter how often we drive through the mountains, and no matter how well we know each peak, the thrill remains. Nature at its best.
