Sunset at the Grove Park Inn


On a cloudy day last week, I noticed the clouds parted just before sunset and let the rays through.  I loved how the mountains were silhouetted in the background fading away into the distance.    The Grove Park Inn is a wonderful place to catch some amazing sunsets with the city of Asheville in the foreground and the Smokey Mountains behind.

Here I have been following you for months and had neglected to add my name to your list....well, I just remedied that!!! The new computer arrived yesterday and I am busily changing everything over. Bud’s blew up so he is taking my year old one and I got a new one. Hope to be up and running tomorrow. These shots from the GPI are lovely. My house was just around a few corners from there. Our little St. Mary’s Church in on the corner. I lived in the Manor Grounds. One time you will have to drive up, shoot the old house, and then post it. That would tickle me to death. Hugs...from your 1 more day before I am 72!!!
