Scenic Sunday # 109: Autumn on the Parkway

View from the Fork Ridge Overlook, Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina. October 25, 2009.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

Although some parts of the country have gotten some relief from the impressive heat, that relief hanse’t reached the Plateau here in East Tennessee.  So I’m looking at pictures from other seasons hoping to feel a little cooler.

The picture above was taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina this past October.  I like the mountain ridges receding into background.  The picture shows why these mountains are called the Blue Ridge.

    The scene goes on and on beautifully!

    It’s still humid here with a chance of storms everyday through Tuesday.
    I could use one day of fall. 🙂

    Mountains are so much more photogenic than the flat fields we have in our polder landscape.
    Thanks for your visit to our Remembrance Day.

    i was hoping i would feel cooler looking at it, but it did not work for me either. it is soooooo hot down here. i have noticed a lot of blogs are discussing heat and all over the world, not just here.

    We’ve been feeling the heat too.
    My grandsons both had football jamboree this past weekend–the hottest weekend of the year so far. And the girls were at a horse event and everybody–horses too–survived. MB
