photoblog image Blue Ridge Mountains

Blue Ridge Mountains

 

Storm update: Florence weakened and went in a more southerly direction than first thought. The coast has been badly hit, but where I am the main threat is flooding and power outages.

 

I took a trip to Boone and surrounding areas in the North Carolina Appalachains in mid-August. ABOVE: Looking east from The Blowing Rock, just south of Boone. BELOW: This is the morning view from the Wilson Creek Valley overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

 

I will lift up my eyes to the hills... --Psalm 121

All good, Larry.
Larry Bliss: I was so beautiful put there.
Jolie forêt bien dense. Je suis contente que la tempête se soit éloignée.
Larry Bliss: Priez pour les habitants des côtes nord et sud de la Caroline. Ils ont de très mauvaises inondations qui dureront plusieurs jours.

Look after yourself Larry

These forested hills are a thing of beauty
Larry Bliss: They are wonderful indeed. Raleigh escaped the worst of it. Flooding on the NC and SC coasts is very bad.

The forested hills are wonderful, they look a bit like the forests in Germany. My good wishes for you and your family!
Larry Bliss: The place refreshed my soul. My family is doing well. Raleigh got off pretty easy compared to the coasts.
Looks wonderful Larry.

Pleased you are OK but it sounds like there is a heck of a lot of rain to come!
Larry Bliss: Some places will get TWO FEET of rain.
You can see why they're called Blue Ridge, Larry. Hoping all's well.
Larry Bliss: We are fine, others on the coast are severely flooded.
Lovely landscapes, Larry.
Larry Bliss: I took the top one from an overlook in the mountains.
Oh, I love these old hills of the Appalachians. They run right through to here in Atlantic Canada. Beautiful shots.
Larry Bliss: Some of the oldest mountains in the world.
