The View From the Blue Ridge Parkway

Saturday we took a drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway. I wanted to see the fall colors and the boys have never been up that way before.

The leaves are nearing peak and are absolutely gorgeous. And the mountains are amazing- as always. 

 We stopped every now and then to take pictures and enjoy the beautiful weather.

 And stopped at the Mt. Pisgah picnic area for lunch. I haven't been up in that area since I was a kid. You can see Mt. Pisgah from our road, and one day we hope to take the kids to hike up to it.

 We continued south on the parkway until gas started to get low and Annika started to get grumpy.


 We made one last stop- as requested by the boys. We hung out here for awhile- letting the boys laugh and joke about the name on the sign. And letting Annika get some energy out.

Then we headed home. This picture is overlooking Hominy Valley. Somewhere in the middle of those peaks is our home. I could look at the leaves and the mountains forever- it's good for the soul.

Luckily I can sit and look the mountains and colors anytime I want because this is the view from the south side of our house- Little Pisgah Mountain and the view from the front and north side are just a beautiful.
