A Sunday Ride Around the Mountains
Remember the days when we would all pile in car on Sunday afternoon and just ride somewhere? It was always an adventure. I’ve been feeling nostalgic these last few days, so I figured, why not? It was snowing this morning up toward Boone, and the wind has been whipping through the passes and valleys all through the mountains. There was a wind chill in the low 40’s this afternoon, but the Sun was out. Apple Trees are beginning to blossom, and even some green leaves are bursting out. All of these photos were made within 15 minutes of the house.
Mt. Mitchell and the surrounding peaks were covered with snow. This view is from atop Young’s Mountain north of Lake Lure.
That’s King’s Mountain on the right. Charlotte is out there in the middle somewhere.
