We enjoyed a long weekend getaway to North Carolina’s High Country recently.
The Blue Ridge Mountains are two hour drive, making it a frequent destination
and getaway for the change in scenery and escape from the summer heat.
At an elevation of 4300 feet, the temperature drops 15 – 20 degrees,
providing some welcome relief from the heat and humidity.
Drink in the scenery and Blue Ridge Mountain views with me . . .
The rhododendrons were in bloom and buzzing with bees.
Everything is lush and green . . .
With a canopy of trees to filter the morning sunlight.
We always enjoy driving through the scenic countryside,
dotted with farms, barns and cows. . .
The cows and geese agree, ‘life’s just better here’. . .
in the summer. :)
One of these things is not like the other. :)
I’ll leave you with some sunrise photos with the clouds drifting along
the valley of the mountains like a lazy river.
In God We Trust.
Lola and Sophie want to know what you’re doing to stay cool this summer?
Happy Weekend ♥
