Road Through the Mountains



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

In December Betsy and I traveled along the interstate from Erwin, Tennessee to Asheville, North Carolina. I got the picture above at an overlook just inside North Carolina. The completion of this stretch of interstate was considered a major achievement, but I think it looks somewhat insignificant beneath that big blue sky and those magnificent mountains.

You have written some great words.

We are simply very tiny creatures.

Agree.. Most of the great human achievements are minuscule compared to the nature's creations!

I really do miss not seeing beautiful mountain vistas like this. We don't travel to the mountains like we use to.
Thanks for making my day brighter, George.

This looks somewhat like our Skyline Drive, which is so scary to me that I won't go on it. It is a wonderful picture, though, of the mountains and the bright blue sky. God moves in a mysterious way, his wonder to perform.

I too am curious as to what lies beyond the horizon so to speak. I too like your words.

It probably is insignificant George but I know traveling down our West Virginia turnpike which was cut through the mountains and seeing the rock chiseled back in layer after layer just makes the mountains and what's underneath more magnificent to me.
Beautiful shot!

America is so big, you will need many months to travel all the roads.

Given some of the roads I've traveled on in the past, this one looks wonderful. Love the big clear blue skies ;-)
