Storm Clouds over the Mountains



Driving on Route 40 these clouds loomed ahead of us going towards the higher mountains.



Looking east you can see the clouds catching on the peaks and wisps drifting below. Rain day offer such wonderful skies here and I enjoy looking at the variations! Click on the photos to enlarge.

Love your pictures of the clouds, especially the first one. BTW, thanks for following my blog in New Hampshire. I still don't have a blog roll going, but I DO enjoy checking in with your blog and your take on life in the Appalachians.

Yep, that's been the view from here as well. We're hoping for sunshine and a trip on the Parkway early next week. Gotta have my breakfast at the Pisgah Inn!

A wonderful part of the world to live in and a beautiful shot as well, particularly the first with the mountains and splendid clouds.

The first photo is breathtaking! I cannot wait until we are able to move somewhere more scenic. As soon as the last child is out of high school we are vamoosing! We plan to move east or a little southeast but NOT south. Just so we're all clear on this...
