This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world. To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.
Betsy and I try to get to the Smokies several times a year to enjoy the mountains and the colors. But the sky is almost always as beautiful as the mountains. This was the case in mid-October.
We drove Newfound Gap Road from Gatlinburg, Tennessee, into North Carolina. Once we got into North Carolina we stopped at the Oconaluftee Valley overlook. There were still clouds left over from the overcast morning, There was still a smoky appearance to the mountains, but what would you expect when visiting Great Smoky Mountains National Park?
By the time we got to the Webb overlook, the sky was much bluer. The mountains seemed to stretch as far as the eye could see.
The skies were definitely beautiful that day, but then too, so were the mountains.
On a personal note, Betsy and I are taking a few of days off for some much-needed R&R. We hope you all will have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We’ll see you after Thanksgiving.
