House Hunting

I'm sorry if you tried to go to the photo gallery and got an error. The internet in the campground is quite unreliable. While adding titles to the pictures the internet went down and caused the gallery to record an error but it should be fixed now. I'm not going to add any more titles until I get home so you will just have to guess the pictures! :-) The first few pictures are of the campground and the rest were taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Today we went to check out a house that is owned by a teacher friend. They recently purchased it for a vacation home for now and a possible retirement home later. It is a very nice house and in a really nice wooded area. Lola, our trusted {?} GPS unit, got confused and we had to do a little hunting to find the house. Just for kicks and giggles we stopped at a modular home display and checked out a rustic log cabin type. Not cheap! Tomorrow we are taking a trip on The Great Smoky Mountain Railway.

I managed to get the rest of the Parkway pictures loaded. You can see why they call these mountains the Great Smokies as the tops are very hazy. It's hard to tell from the pictures but the mountains seem to go on forever with one layer behind another layer as far as the eye can see. In the pictures, unless you look closely, it's hard to tell what is mountain and what is sky and clouds.

Today, on the way back from Murphy, we stopped and took pictures of some white water rafters. There was mist coming up from the water. We think it was caused by the difference in water and air temperature. According to one of the rafters the water temp was only 46 degrees! One of the raft guides fell off the raft right in front of us. He didn't look very happy.
