Yesterday, hubby and I decided to do some "leaf peepin". It was a glorious day and so we headed up to Boone - @ 2 hours from here. It's a little farther north, and a little colder so we were hoping for some leaf change. It wasn't peak but still beautiful. The sky was crystal clear and lots of color everywhere. This is the Blue Ridge Parkway, a national treasure which runs right through Asheville. We are lucky to have this so close by. I know sometimes when you live in a place for a while, you become numb to the beautiful things around you, things that made you fall in love with the place to begin with. But this parkway, I never tire of. I'll go out of my way, tack a few more minutes onto the trip to drive on it. In any season, it's a beautiful place to be. So enjoy the little picture journey of leaf peepin.
The tiny little blue area is the Asheville watershed. This was taken in Craggy Gardens, one of our favorite places on the Blue Ridge parkway with some great hiking trails also.
How beautiful is this!
Happy Fall. I hope you're enjoying every moment of it cause you know what follows the fall - The COLD WHITE STUFF!
