From the other side of the valley

The Swannanoa River and walking path both pass under the bridge of the Interstate on the right behind the vine covered tree.
 I enjoyed watching clouds tickle the tops of the Seven Sisters Mountains the other day.  I was parked across the Swannanoa Valley, actually looking for my apartment.  Up hill behind me was the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly campus, including the administration building which I can see from my windows. (I gave some pictures of it a couple of days ago).

There are community gardens (out of sight to the right) and a walking trail which goes along the Swannanoa River under Interstate-40.

In winter we see the houses perched on the sides of slopes, which will be invisible once leaves come back out.
But did I find my apartment complex?  No.  I think it's off to the left a bit, since Blue Ridge Road curves around a bit.  The bottom of the valley is where 2 major roads, an active railroad track, and the Swannanoa River run.

It began in mystery and it will end in mystery, but what a rare and beautiful country lies in between.

  1. I like that vine covered tree, yesterday we were driving along and their were clouds that looked like the tops of a snow covered mountain range.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
