Fall Day Trip

One happy dog, doing her favorite thing ever - going for a ride!

Approaching Winston-Salem, and the colors are starting to pop.

Pilot Mountain, near Mount Airy, NC. For fans of the Andy Griffith Show, this is what they called Mt. Pilot. Andy grew up in Mount Airy, which is the basis for Mayberry.

View from an overlook on Squirrel Spur Road, a twisty, steep road that runs from Ararat, VA to Meadows of Dan, VA. Pilot Mountain is in the distance.

The colors were gorgeous all along Squirrel Spur Road.

Entering the Blue Ridge Parkway!

Another view of Pilot Mountain, this time from an overlook on the BRP.

While the colors on the trees along the Parkway were mostly past peak, the meadows were still stunningly green. I couldn't stop photographing this.

Mabry Mill, in Meadows of Dan, VA. About 200 miles northwest of home. This is as far north as we went before turning around to make our way back home.

The ducks were mooning us.

Wow, beautiful set. I love Mayberry and Andy. Sometimes I think I grew up in a town like that.

How beautiful! :) They remind me of the photos I took last October when Brett was moving up and we were driving from MA back up to Ontario! Ahhh - I love fall.... except for the arrival of winter :P
