Oh my goodness – the weather Saturday when we were in the mountains was absolutely gorgeous – there is just nothing like it. First thing Saturday morning we headed to Roan Mountain, to check out the rhododendron. They were really about a week past their prime, and Kirkie said that she didn’t think it had been one of their best years anyway, but it was still just so, so pretty.
We went down to the state park to check out the TN Rhododendron Festival, then back to Kirkie’s house for lunch and a nap, and then went out walking to check out the ponds there near their home. Just beautiful.
