A Day in the Mountains

A drive to the mountains near where I live seemed like a good adventure over the weekend.  After an hour of driving I started to see hills that soon turned into mountains.  When I got off the highway there was an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The morning was getting more and more interesting!  I decided to drive on it for a while and every couple of miles there was a lookout point.  I stopped, got out of the car and took a good look at the mountains.  It became breezy as the road ascended and I needed to wear a sweater as I looked out to see these panoramic views.

Since I also enjoy flowers I thought that these wildflowers were a charming part of the landscape.  The events of this day produced some wonderful memories.

  1. I love the Blue Ridge Mountains, they’re especially incredible during autumn. We went there while we were exploring Shenandoah and the surrounding areas. It’s gorgeous country!

  2. I do like the coast, but sometimes there’s nothing better than taking a trip to the mountains. It feels fresher and you can clear your head… wonderful photos, the wildflowers are so pretty

  3. We were in that vicinity over July 4th weekend. I hadn’t seen the mountains in a long time, and enjoy seeing your photos. I managed to delete the photos from my Nikon’s card without downloading them. Glad there were a few on my cell phone!
