I had to run errands in Black Mountain the next morning after a rainy night. The clouds still lingered, snagged on the mountain peaks.
Trying to get a better view of the clouds I headed over to the tiny town of Montreat. Lake Susan sits in the center of the Montreat College campus and provided outstanding reflections of the fall foliage.
The lake is home to a couple of swans but I only saw one that day. I do hope nothing happened to the other. The one swan kept swimming back and forth along the wall in front of me like she was searching for something she may have lost in that spot.
