Friday Fotos

Natasha - We are enjoying our mountain views from our hike and thought you would enjoy a few.

Like this one taken from Richland Balsam - the highest point on the Blue Ridge Parkway at over 6000 feet (1800 meters).

We enjoyed watching the clouds hug the valleys below us.

Always fun watching the clouds wrap around the mountains.

But we also just enjoyed the long-range views.

And the sun beams dancing in the distance.

Enough to make Kiska smile.

    Kiska has such an exotic look about her. I had a friend years ago with a Husky that had that kind of face and he said it was a throw-back to the old breed. Is this true, DK? Kiska is the only other dog I have seen with it.

    Cheers,

    Jo and Stella

    Queen Natasha looks like she’s a pretty happy girl, too. Who wouldn’t be, with views like that in your life every day, and a hu-family to take you for runs in all that beauty. Makes me ‘n Ice wish we could be there with you.
