A Mountain Adventure!

We drove up to the property we have in the mountains ofAlign Center NC near the TN border on Sunday.

It was a fabulous day and I took lots of photos.

We picnicked up there and then
drove to the small town of Hot Springs
to walk around and enjoy the neat shops!

and a bridge painted RED!

The weather was fabulous and the views breathtaking!

Time to drive DOWN the winding mountain!

We stopped and picked up some goodies for dinner
and rented the movie Mamma Mia!

I LOVED IT! I knew I would....and I DID!

What a beautiful season to be in the mountains!

Have a wonderful day!

This looks to be a fantastic place to have a mountain cabin!
I bet there are all sorts of birds and wildflowers and butterflies!

Hi Diane,
The mountain photos looked great. Before we retired in '05, my wife and I lived not too far from there, near Helen, GA.
