Oh Those Glorious Mountains

Along the Cherohala Skyway
First of all a very HAPPY LABOR DAY to you and yours... Hope you are with family enjoying the day!!!!!

On August 3, 2016,   George took me on a Surprise Birthday Trip... This was the first day of that trip --so I'll share some pictures as we stopped along the Cherohala Skyway (between Tellico Plains,  Tennessee and Robbinsville,  North Carolina) --and then onto the Blue Ridge Parkway (between Cherokee,  North Carolina and Mt. Pisgah,  North Carolina).  Hope you enjoy seeing these beautiful mountains today!!!!

George loves this drive also --and is happy for surprising me so much!!!!!  (I LOVE that man.)

Layers and layers of beauty along the Blue Ridge Parkway

WOW----this old woman is really LOVIN'  the mountains!

I love it when the wildflowers just enhance the beauty of the area  (along the Blue Ridge Parkway)

A nice lady volunteered to take our picture at the highest point along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Two people in love enjoying the Glory of the Mountains!
As I look at these pictures,   I am reminded of how gorgeous they are ---both in Summer and what they'd look like in AUTUMN.....  Think we'll just have to go back!!!!!  Okay,  Honey????????

Hope you enjoyed our day in the mountains!
