Picture of the day - October 18, 2006

The Mountains Of Western North Carolina


North Carolina Mountains

On the way home from Shatley Springs, Cheria and I took the scenic route hoping to see some spectacular fall foliage as we drove through the western North Carolina mountains. After driving through Wilkesboro and Boone, we veered off the beaten path at Zionville and drove by the home of Cheria's cousin Mary Ruth and her family. As luck would have it, they were just getting ready to go on a leaf-peeping trip of their own and they invited us to tag along.

We followed their truck as it snaked its way up a narrow, steep and crooked one-lane road - which soon turned into a gravel lane! Wondering what we had gotten ourselves into, we continued following them up the mountain taking in the beautiful scenery along the way. Our "grandson" Sage and granddaughter Olivia were riding along in the back seat, and while Sage seemed to be having the time of his life, it was quite obvious that Olivia was not enjoying the rough ride one bit!

But when the road finally leveled off at the top of the mountain, what we found waiting for us there were some of the most magnificent mountain views we had ever seen. It didn't matter whether we looked left or right, the view was equally amazing in both directions! After stopping the car in several places to take pictures, we said our goodbyes and continued on our way. I wish to extend a special thank you to Steven, Mary Ruth and the boys for leading us on what turned out to be one of the most enjoyable sight-seeing excursions ever!
