Chris asked me to make a day of it the other day and spend the day with him driving the Blue Ridge Parkway and beyond to see the colorful leaves. In the back of my mind I was thinking about all that I had to do including those dirty windows but I said yes and we had a nice little adventure.
We ended up driving all day, hit three states and 5 national forests in our travels and saw sights from the highest part of the parkway down to the the 2-3000 elevation where colors are truly at peak right now. It was fun and you know what? Those dirty windows and all of the other household stuff was still there when we got home.
Time is short so I have decided to try to live in the moment a little bit more and do things like this. Enjoy the pictures.
There was a group of bear hunters with their dogs gathered at one of the overlooks and I had to get a shot of one of the trucks with the dogs. Their tails were thumping inside their pens but I didn’t pet them because their owners weren’t around. I always ask.
The kudzu is dying.
There is so much beauty in the mountains. Even as the leaves fall – there is still beauty.
