A Mountain Morning

I figured I should recap last weekend before this weekend starts. Last weekend I was in North Carolina at my Grandfather’s. My mom and I went up there and my Aunt, Uncle and Cousin were also there for a visit. Saturday morning we woke up and went to Joey’s Pancake House. It is a local and tourist favorite, always crowded because it is pretty dang good. We got there early enough where we didn’t have to wait but about five minutes. Breakfast was delicious and afterwards my cousin wanted to go driving up on the Blue Ridge Parkway. He’s from texas and doesn’t get over to the Mountains nearly as much as we do. It was something my mom and I don’t do often since we are there so much. It is always refreshing how beautiful the Mountains are. By 11 o’ clock we had already had a pretty great day in my book.  

 view from the top of an observation tower. allegedly the most photographed view in the smokies. 
 not the best picture but not the worst. it should be noted we woke up, threw on some clothes and went to breakfast! 
 waterrock knob- a little over a mile high. 
 I love the way the clouds are floating

 this side was really foggy and the sun was peaking through! 


  1. Looks gorgeous! I love being able to get out and spend time in nature. It doesn't happen nearly often enough!

  2. Oh wow, what a stunning view!!! I haven't been to the mountains in so so long. Louisiana doesn't have much as far as pretty scenery! Haha!


I love reading y'alls comments! Let me know what you think : )
