Scenic Sunday: Evening in the Mountains

Evening in the western North Carolina Mountains, Otto, North Carolina. August 15, 2006.

Evenings in the mountains can be magical times.  We were visiting our friends Judy and Charlie at their cabin near Otto, North Carolina, when I snapped this picture.  The sun was starting to drop behind the mountains, and mist was rising in the valleys.  The dead tree seemed to add a sense of mystery to the scene.

    Well done! Love your header also!

    We still haven’t had much snow around here — just one light snow. I haven’t really missed the snow, but someone we both know is longing for some more.
