Up in the Blue Ridge Mountains

We all decided to take a long weekend and head up to the mountains for a little Fall "Leaf Peaping"

It's about 300 miles from the coast into the Blue Ridge Mountains where we currently are sitting enjoying the cool fall temps and crisp mountain air.

A few photos from our travels today:

My 3 girls at Cumberland Knob Overlook

This view is looking East out over the vast Piedmont of NC towards the Atlantic Ocean about 300 miles away.  We are up about 2,000 feet above the Piedmont, on the first ridge of the Blue Ridge Mountains. 
In the center off in the distance is Pilot Mountain.
  You Mayberry RFD fans might remember it as "Mt Pilot"

We visited "Mabry Mill" an old water powered grist mill along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
It was a beautiful day in some beautiful surroundings.
Tomorrow it's Back to Mayberry!


  1. Beautiful pictures, I miss the mountains in the Fall. Kim
