Through the Smokies...

As we left the cabin we called home for a week, we motored past the kudzu-covered silos that we passed every day that week on our way out of the neighborhood.  We drove down through Cherokee, North Carolina to the Blue Ridge Parkway.


The vistas were marvelous and it didn’t take very long for us to realize that the Great Smoky Mountains are called the Great Smoky Mountains for a reason.





After a while, we got on the interstate and headed for home.  It was a wonderful week with good friends in a very beautiful part of this country.

  Can’t complain!

We had similar feelings when we saw the Blue Ridge and marveled out the coloration. (By the way, Barbara, we visited Sturbridge Village and walked our way all around on a very humid day, Tuesday. Norman Rockwell Museum was great to see today.)

those mountains are amazing and i know kudzu is killer vine but it is beautiful on those old silos.
