Blue Ridge Mountains

Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. November 22, 2010.

In late November Betsy and I went to Asheville, North Carolina, for a couple of days.  While there we took a drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway towards Mount Mitchell.  Most of the leaves were gone from the trees by that time, but that simply meant we could see more of those beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.  This was the view from near Craggy Gardens.

The red dot on the map above shows where we were when the picture was taken.
