The Mountains of NC!

We are happy to be spending some time in the mountains this Fall.

The leaves have fallen but it’s still very pretty.

The mountains are always beautiful no matter what the season.

We have a wonderful view of the mountains from our condo and I stood out on the balcony to get some sunset photos. I’m sure I’ll have more pics to share. I saw one tree that was still loaded with dark red leaves…if we go back down that road again. We love going to our favorite stores and shops here. And of course eating at our favorite restaurants. We’ve already eaten lasagna at Iannucci’s….it’s always amazing!

We have family to visit here too so there will be lots of happy times ahead. And great places to hike, too!

Let’s see….it was 34 degrees one morning but the high was in the 50s that afternoon. Let’s see how long this lasts! And how long WE last! heehee! Bbbbbbrrrrrr!!!!

What’s your weather like now? Enjoy your week!

I’m joining Thankful Thursdays.

I have not be to NC since I was a child and that was along time ago. We have NC on our list to visit after Hubby retires to see if we want to move there. Any advice on some nice small towns?

What a good time for a mountain trip. I love the Fall weather and turning leaves. I'm heading to Texas tomorrow with my Mom for a family reunion. She is so excited, I'm glad we can go! Hugs!

I was wondering if you were headed up to your place this Fall. I know you are usually up there this time of year. Glad to see you are "home" and have family that will be there, too.

Looking forward to more pictures! xo Diana

It sounds as though you will be having a wonderful time in the mountains! The views are beautiful. It's finally getting cooler, here, too. I'm one of those strange people who like the cold, though, so I'm pretty happy about it! :-)

Diane, I'm glad you are enjoying the NC mountains. Yes, it has been cold lately. Today, it was a wonderful 60 degrees but I'm afraid the cold weather is due to return soon. xx

Hi Diane

It's nice you are getting a chance to spend time in the mountains and visit with family. Have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Lorrie said...

Living in a total flat state - wow - those mountains are incredibly beautiful, Diane! Your pics of the sunset are stunning!

Enjoy your visits with family and enjoy your get-away.

The mountains of NC are so beautiful and you got there just in time to see some fall color. I will be looking forward to more beautiful pictures from you hikes. Enjoy your time with family.

Tonita said...

Just found your blog. I closed my business and sold my large home in WA state and bought a very small century old farmhouse in the Appalachian mountains, online and sight unseen, not knowing anyone here. I LOVE mountain life in NC. Have never regretted the move here. It does seem like there are more Floridians here than locals though. Looking forward to exploring your blog. Enjoy your time here in the mountains of NC. Blessings.

Oh Diane, I just love the views of the mountains and the colour in the Autumn trees is just lovely... but that last shot is simply gorgeous!

Enjoy your few days away, and enjoy family time too.

All the best Jan

It's so beautiful there! Love the photos of the mountains in the distance. We have similar temps here - I worked outside today, raking leaves and my cheeks are still rosy! Enjoy your time there! xx Karen

Enjoy your family time. Enjoy the time in the mountains. Take lots of photos to share with us. And our high temp has been 35!!! It has been cold and damp and NO sunshine to speak of. My bones are cold!
Love, Carla

How wonderful that you got to visit the mountains this Fall. I LOVE THE MOUNTAINS.....and everything about them! Fresh clean air, beautiful woods to hike, and God's beautiful nature all around. There's nothing better. : ) The sunset picture is lovely, Diane.
