The fall colors are hitting their peak on the mountains in western North Carolina. So we loaded up Mister Jim’s car earlier this week and bolted to enjoy the scenery for a few days. We stayed in Brevard, North Carolina, and explored Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The scenery was incredible! It was a new area for me to explore, and one that Mister Jim had not seen in several decades. In addition to sightseeing, I also got some needed practice with my new camera. It got the better of me a couple of times, but I managed to take some pretty photos anyhow, LOL.
This image was taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway, a few miles northeast of the parkway's intersection with route 276. The city of Asheville is down there somewhere!
On one day of our trip, we briefly ventured into the big city so that we could attend the fall craft fair of the Southern Highland Craft Guild and visit the nearby Folk Art Center. We had a wonderful time at both venues and bought a few handcrafted treasures.
We’re going to briefly catch up this weekend with the household and then head out again, this time to middle Tennessee. I hope that you are enjoying the autumn season too!
