Living in Asheville, NC has so many wonderful things going for it but one of the best in my opinion is the Blue Ridge Parkway which runs right through it. The parkway is a national treasure with breathtaking views everywhere you look. I will go out of my way to take the parkway rather than one of the roads more conveniently located...I never tire of it.
We do many long drives during all seasons but especially the fall with all the brilliant color. This is a culmination of more than one trip this season.
I get a lot of inspiration from the photos I take...I love the layering of mountains and think done in layers of organza would achieve a nice effect.
I also love the bright foliage close in to give it perspective.
We hit the highest point on the parkway at 6053 feet...mighty cold up there.
Looking Glass Mountain which does look like glass is always great to see and does stand out because of its odd shape and bald top.
