Down Memory Lane: The Blue Ridge Parkway

In October, 2009, Betsy and I took the scenic route home from Maggie Valley, North Carolina, by taking the Blue Ridge Parkway from Maggie Valley to its southern terminus in the Smokies.  Although we were a little late to see the best of the autumn colors, the mountains were still a glorious sight, which we thoroughly enjoyed, stopping at just about every overlook on our way.

    George, I so appreciate the autumn colors and thoughts of cool breezes in this hot, humid, dry late spring we are having. A little over 11 inches behind in rainfall this year, sigh.

    I love autumn so very much – but for us here – we’ve had one hot day and not yet even a warm spring! Patiently waiting!!!

    What a lovely collage George! I really like the way you put it together.
    It’s funny my Stepdad told my Mom the other day that fall would be here before we knew it. I love fall and your lovely images but I can wait for it to actually get here. 🙂
