It is grey, cold and very unwelcoming outside at the moment. It might rain with mix of snow later in the evening. I was looking through my photos and wanted to post something with bright green colors, full of summer life. We took a good hike back in middle of July, somewhere around Blue Ridge Parkway. I felt like this one is nice choice to counterbalance todays weather. The only part missing here is the actual noise from the running creek, it is so peaceful and comforting. Enjoy.
