|George and Betsy at Craggy Pinnacle, 6/23/18, on our Anniversary!!|
We are SELDOM on the parkway when it is as clear as a bell --but this was the day!!!! No haze/no clouds/ no rain---but LOTS of puffy clouds which add to the beauty of photos. The weather was a photographer's dream!!!!
AND---it was cool up there... The average temperature both days was about 70 degrees (enough to have the windows opened in the car--which I LOVE) --but when we were at the Craggy Pinnacle (elevation about 5500 feet), the temperature got down to 65 degrees --with a cool breeze... AWESOME!!!!
Hope you enjoy my pictures from our special day... Most of the pictures were taken on Saturday, the 23rd, but a few of them were on the 24th. Please click on the pictures for a larger version with more details...

|So much beauty all around!!!!|
|We loved the cloud formations as much as the mountains!!!|
|Us the next day (6/24/18) along the Blue Ridge Parkway heading south! (You can see that we had another gorgeous day.)|

|The Rhododendrons were gone for the season, but we saw LOTS of Mountain Laurel in bloom.|
|We enjoyed taking photos of the shadows in the mountain ranges --caused by the passing clouds!|
