Morning Fog On the Mountains

Double Layers
After another inch of rain yesterday, layers of fog hugged the mountains and settled in the valley this morning at sunrise. It was 61 degrees with no wind. Otter Creek Valley can be found just a few miles north of historic Lake Lure along the eastern escarpment of the Blue Ridge.

Below is Mount Shumont west of Lake Lure. In the mist, it is reminiscent of Mt. Fugi in Japan.

    Great photos ! One of my long memories of Foggy Mountains is back when there was no Aircondition in the Car
    and a few Skunks were n’t visable in the Fog but their smell was caught up in the Fog ! :>))
