Carolina in the Evening



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

If you've visited here very often, you could be forgiven for coming to the conclusion that Betsy and I very much enjoy the mountains. These particular mountains are near Franklin, North Carolina. This picture was taken while sitting on the deck of a cabin in the early evening.

Nothing could be finer . . .

You and Betsy are right to be mountain lovers! I grew up in a country with huge volcanoes and now I live in the flattest country of the world.

On a clear day ( which are rare) we have a view of our local foothills. We don't call them mountains unless they are over 3 or 4 thousand feet. 120 miles away is Big Bear. The summit is about 8600 feet.
