The Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee as seen from my friends' house. I went to visit for a week of hiking and relaxation. It was great to get away from the Texas heat and drought. The fall color was at it's peak.
We had a picnic dinner one night on a hill just up from their house. We ate Amish cheese with wine, and watched a front roll in.
The next morning, I awoke to this view outside my window. It's been months since I've seen it rain like this.
When the sun finally came out again, I went hiking around their property. They own about 100 acres in these mountains.
The hike was photographically inspiring. I've posted more pics here at Silk Creek Portal.
