Another view of Linville Falls

in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

It is a pretty steep hike to get up to this view

but as you can see, very worth it!

Field with Cloud

We have had a very unusual climate this summer.

It has been unseasonally cool for North Carolina,

but the skys have been beautiful. 

This was probably the largest cloud I’ve ever seen, 

and it was even more spectacular

with the sun setting against it.

Our baby horse is growing up,

he’s with all the big horses now.

I love the name of this little sailboat – Silver Lining
