We have lived fairly close to the Blue Ridge Parkway for a few years now, and have finally gotten around to taking a drive along a section of it. I guess these post-Church Sunday drives in the Spring have become a tradition for us. Spring came a little earlier this year than it did last year, and we have been enjoying the warm weather quite a bit. I did notice that the higher up the mountain we got, the less green it looked. There was an obvious difference in the temperature also– at least 10o cooler.
This next picture was not quite at the top of the mountain that we were on, but it was the highest point that I was able to get a picture before the batteries in the camera died.
As some of you know, one of my ears has been plugged up for about 2 weeks now (not exactly sure why– allergies maybe?), and what was interesting was that when we started to make our way back down the mountian, I felt a good bit of relief in my ear at about 2800 feet. Unfortunately, by the time we reached the bottom again, my ear was completely plugged up again.
