Gold on Balsam Mountain



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

Last Tuesday Betsy and I interrupted our trip to Maggie Valley, North Carolina, in order to take a hike to an overlook on Balsam Mountain. Before reaching the overlook I looked up and discovered gold.

Yes, that's gold says King Midas. I used to joke that if only they are real gold. We have two trees like that, and they drop their leaves on my cars.

Good Morning George, What a pretty shot of the gold leaves against the sky! We certainly enjoyed our time together on Monday. Hope you have a wonderful day.

A great picture, and a good way to put it. There is gold for us to see that's not in the mines, but all over the place!

That color always amazes me as it can be a cloudy day and near one of those golden trees, it's totally sunny.
