Sigh, I love that photo. It reminds me of a lifetime's worth of summer trips ...like those distant mountains blending into a vague recollection.
You captured some true Maxfield Parrish blues - lovely!
A great photograph. It also reminds me that perhaps a re-reading of You Can't Go Home Again is in order.
Please don't reveal any more of thenatural beauties of NC. We already have too many Yankees here as it is.
My 20 yr high school reunion is next Friday. Anticipation mixes with vague dread, especially since I forgot to order my shoes til yesterday.
I generally hike the Tennessee side of the Smokies. With views like this abounding on both sides, you can see why I hike.
It looks beautiful though, I've never been to this part of the country. We just got back from northern WI and the UP,having spent a few days in the Porkies. I love this stuff.
"How many shades of blue are there?" the acolyte asked Master Lin."Enough shades of blue there are, my lad, to reach the horizon."
Peach cupcakesSeen on Big Red Kitchen who in turn saw them in some magazine, possibly Southern Living. Linked by Al Dente blog and Instapundit. They're cute and ladies like them and they taste OK, but I can not recommend them.
Captured it perfectly.
Wow, that's beautiful.
After seeing that photo I am thinking of a mo migration to Craggy Pinnacle.You are enjoying life Althouse. That is so good to see.
Reminds me of the cover of the novel Cold Mountain. Probably the color. Anyway, beautiful photo.
Cold Mountain to which The Den Mother refers is only about 30 miles SW as the crow flies from Craggy Pinnacle.
The mountains are crying because Paula Abdul might not be back on American Idol. Travesty!
Landscapes need dogs.So many focuses of attention at once.
Nice photo, but I don't understand the comment about self-expression, unless it's merely another exhortation for everyone to babble. Is that it?It certainly can't refer to the photo,..The Macho Response
An interesting fact about the mountains in western NC is that the indigenous plants are the same as those found in Canada. Mountain Laurel is a special beauty there, which are in the azalea family. Life is old there, older than the hills which are 300 million years old.
Interesting complaints about Yankees moving to NC. I thought the most burdensome interlopers were coming from Florida these days.
They are called half backs - Yankees who moved to Florida, then moved half the way back. They are still the same scum sucking idiots, regardless of where they have washed ashore lately.
Clearly this writer has never read this blog.
re Triangle Man and NKVD's comments, in WNC it is half-backs and Floridians. I was under the distinct impression that in the Piedmont and east, it is Yankees moving in from NY and NJ. Growing up in Greensboro in the 60s & 70s, it was always New Yorkers and New Jerseyites with a few from Massachusetts tossed in for good measure.When I moved to the mountains, it was only Floridians except for the flotsam and jetsam that lands in Asheville.
