The mountains take on many moods and colors throughout the seasons. Many mornings have a blue cast like this one but a bright rising or setting sun can provide a bright orange glow.

I love morning in the moutains. They offer a beauty and serenity like nowhere else. Although I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world and visit every continent on this earth, coming home to the Blue Ridge is always welcome and adds truth to that old cliche that there’s no place like home.
