Morning Fog On the Mountains
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 the southwestern ridge leading to Wolf Pen Mountain.
Below is Mount Shumont west of Lake Lure. In the mist, it is reminiscent of Mt. Fugi in Japan.
