A Wonderful Day

Well, It was a typical fall day warm and sunny. The temperature was moderate. A drive through the mountains and the backroads of Johnson County seemed a terrific way to spend such a gorgeous fall day.

The mountains were splendid. From the bright yellow leaves of the birch, yellow poplar and hickory to the mountain ash, sumac, oaks, and maples that vary in shades from orange to brilliant red to brown and even purple it was a rainbow of colors.

A variety of wildflowers, Black-eyed Susans, goldenrod and asters, small shrubs, bright trees and a few cows dotted the roadsides.

An old barn full of drying tobacco caught my eye
Around every corner the beauty and splendor of the day could hardly be matched.

Watauga Lake was breathtakingly beautiful.

The top of the mountain awaits.

From the top of the mountain the scenery seemed to go on forever. I felt like I was On Top Of The World.

Beautiful days like this are like the last bite of your favorite candy ---something to be savored.

That's it for today.

Your photos of Johnson County make an old country boy homesick for the area in which I grew up. I am glad that you get to make frequent trips back to Johnson County.
