This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

Betsy and her childhood girlfriends are working on their ‘Girls Only’ annual getaway.  This year they’re talking about renting a cabin in Maggie Valley, North Carolina.

That got me to looking through some of my North Carolina pictures.  I came across the picture above, which was taken near Franklin, North Carolina earlier this year.  It shows clouds over the western North Carolina mountains in the early evening.  The tops of some of the clouds still reflect the setting sun.
