I returned to my native town of Asheville, North Carolina, to visit with my family and attend their Labor Day Weekend Campout. We camped out for two nights, but Randy and I also had plenty of spare time to check out the sights, as well. It's always a treat to return to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is accessible about ten miles from where I originally lived. Ole Bonnie (my 1990 Toyota Camry) didn't enjoy taking the sharp switchbacks too much, considering that she's been leaking power steering fluid this week, but with God's grace, we got up and back down the mountain. I took Randy along another trail that my father took me growing up, which is along the Northern side of the Parkway. It's called Craggy Gardens, and with it's breathtaking mountain views, one can also find unique wildlife perfect for photography, such as the plethora of trees that have bent and twisted with age. It has certainly lifted my spirits to return home and remember the beauty that was around me growing up.
I'm still sorting through the many shots I took when I visited this weekend, and I hope to make those available to everyone this week. I don't think anyone will be disappointed How was everyone's weekend? How did you spend it?
