Up in smoke :D

Smokies, Tennessee

Nothing quite says summer to me like a vacation in mountains........and it's been so ever since we (my brother and I) were kids. To this day any passing vignette of countryside framed by the car window awakens in me the same childlike flutter of excitement as Roald Dahl would have felt when he wrote "Summer holidays!The magic words" :) So here we are amidst Smokies, away from the daily grind, on a long weekend of absolute mountain-air bliss and I am lovin' it!!!!! :)

Oh, I'm so happy for you. Have a wonderful time in the mountains. They are always like medicine to my soul.
Your Smokies are quite different from what we are experiencing in California. Our smokies are the real thing...the fires aren't raging where we live but the resulting murky smoke filled air is a constant reminder of whats happening else where.
This is a fantastic picture, by the way.

That's pretty Moi! I love the mountains, I think I like them better than the beach. And your last shots are awesome. Summer is probably coming to an end huh? Take care.
