Cataloochee Valley Fog



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

In October Betsy and I went to Cataloochee Valley in North Carolina to see the elk. The elk were there, but so was fog. There are no elk in this field, but I like the fog trying to hide the mountains at the end of the valley.

*******************

Betsy and I will be taking a blogging break for the next few days. But we hope you will all have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas.

I love the fog in the valley. It looks like cotton candy in a dish. The red in those plants is a beautiful contrast.

Anna said...

Same happened to me when I went to Nova Scotia, we had lots of fog, and it was hard to find a wild life.

George, also I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Let it be filled with love, peace and good health. Best wishes for 2011.

Take care and I will see you blogging next year.

Anna :)
