An Autumn Drive through the Mountains

We came home from North Georgia this past Thursday. Our drive home took us through Franklin and Murphy, NC. We then headed back into Tennessee and across the Cherokee National Forest headed toward Tellico Plains, TN. The drive over the mountain was so pretty even though it was still drizzling. I took several pictures through the front windshield (sorry about the glare) --just to show you some of the pretty colors as we drove over that mountain on that winding two-lane road.

We were also surprised to find a gorgeous little waterfall as we headed up that mountain. SO today I will show you a few pictures of that lovely drive on an Autumn day in Tennessee. Above and below are some pictures taken along our way!!! Hope you enjoy them.

This pretty little waterfall is named UNICOI FALLS. It was beside the road and we almost missed it. We had to turn around in order to stop and take pictures. Isn't it pretty????

Another picture of some of the pretty colors along our way

This is the top part of UNICOI FALLS---up close and personal.

Here's one more picture of this pretty mountainous area in Tennessee. I'm sorry that there is a glare --plus some of the dashboard in the pictures, but I don't have time to crop anything today. I hope you enjoyed our little ride anyhow.

Today, we are in Jacksonville, FL attending a Memorial Service for my brother. Just coming down here has made me 'teary' again.. There's no more family left here --so we may never come back to this area again. It's just very sad although I know in my heart that Ray is in a much better place now. Please say a prayer for Ray's children and grandchildren ---and for George and me today. Thanks!
