Rise and Shine

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

I imagine that most ‘normal’ people use a vacation as an opportunity to sleep in and take things easy. Fortunately (or unfortunately) My Beautiful Bride and I are not ‘normal’. We often get up earlier than we normally would just to enjoy the sunrise.

That was certainly the case when we visited the Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina in August. We couldn’t see the sun from the balcony of our room, but the sky was still beautiful at sunrise. The picture above was taken the first morning we were there.

The fog in the valleys looked like a blanket spread around the mountains below us.

Looking to the west also gave us a peaceful, serene view of the world from the mountains.

The sunrise on our last morning at Pisgah Inn gave us a lot of incentive to come back.

    And they are even prettier enlarged! I love the blanket of fog in the distance. I have been wondering…do you still post on your other blog? Guess I have lost track of it somehow, I don’t know how.

    Just beautiful. I wish I had that incentive to get up at sunrise. Actually I do here at home and go for a walk in the forest but its not a good place for sunrise pics. On holidays I sleep in.
