A Magical View of Sugarloaf Mountain

On Saturday, I was driving to a local watering hole to enjoy some college football with friends,  and as I approached the Lake Lure area, the Sun suddenly found some openings in the distant clouds, and rays were streaming down over the ridges around Chimney Rock, especially 4,000 foot Sugarloaf Mountain to the southeast of the iconic megalith. I quickly drove to an open area to get the best view, and this was the result.

Sun Rays over Sugarloaf Mountain

These magical moments are so fleeting, and the majesty of these ancient vistas never ceases to amaze me.
