Here is a close up shot of the fire and smoke at Lake Lure Chimney Rock area on Sunday, November 6. We were coming home from the mountains and decided to take the rural roads instead of the interstate. Such a shame! It is now one of the largest fires in North Carolina. The mountains really need the rain!
This is a pretty shot of the Moses Cone Manor House in autumn. Flat Top Manor sits on a hill overlooking Bass Lake, also called Cone Lake. The area is in Blowing Rock and the estate house is on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Great place to visit and walk around the lake!
