Spring's Beauty

Is anyone else tired of rain? I know, April Showers bring May flowers but...enough already! I'm pretty sure most of us are ready for nice sunny days and warm temps!
However, I do realized that even gray rain filled days have there own beauty if you just look in the right places. The photo posted here is an example of that. These are the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. This was taken one morning after a day of rain. The sun was coming out, in fact it was shinning bright on one side of the mountain but very foggy and misty on the other side. You can see how the mist was low in the valley. We, two friends and I, stopped on the Skyline Drive to watch as it danced its way up and out of the valley to dissipate in the sky, before we continued our journey to Schuyler, VA aka "Walton's Mountain".

We visited the "Walton's Mountain" Museum, took pictures of Earl Hamner's (John Boy) childhood home and visited The Walton's Mountain Country Store in addition to Waltons memorabilia I was happy to find some wonderful prim items for sale along with one of my favorite prim magazines, "A Primitive Place"! I couldn't resist the jar with prim label "The Baldwin Sisters Recipe". If you ever have the chance to visit the Shenandoah Valley, especially in the Spring or Fall, DO SO! You will not regret it and be sure to bring your camera.
