The Saint and I left our Georgia Gardens over the weekend for an unexpected trip to Virginia. Some times, those are the best trips. As was this one. When we go to visit The Saints family, we go different routes to keep the drive fun. This trip, we decided to take the mountains so we could leaf peep along the way. I was shocked as to how much color remained in the trees as I assumed most color would be long gone by now. I believe I snapped this shot in North Carolina.
All pictures were taken from a moving car as we did not take the time to stop and play along the way. Oh yeah, I think I could live in that house nestled amongst the beauty.
The sun was helping the colors to pop!
As we climbed the mountain, the color was less and less with bare trees.
One of our favorite places along this drive; The horse farms at the foot of the mountains.
I tried my best to snap a picture with the beautiful white fences in view but no such luck. The white fences go for miles and miles but on a two lane winding road with no pull over spots.
This picture gives a great example of why the name Blue Ridge Mountains.
I so enjoy driving straight towards such sights as this.
Even the roadside had a view for us while on this trip. We returned home yesterday to a temp of 78 degrees! I enjoyed our beautiful drive by the BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS, but cannot wait to get back, In the Garden...
