We grew apple trees there to enjoy, had beautiful flowers that thrived so well and enjoyed hummingbird's feeding upon them. And after our daughter married and moved out we decided to sell and move to the rural part of town. Where now we can sit upon my front porch and see the long spand skyline mountain peak beauty that use to live right in the heart of, which is just 15 miles from here.
Up on the mountain there are two choices once you get half way up there where we lived in which you can go on up too the Bald Mountain Peak or go across another mountain (called Green Mountain) then work your way back down to the base of those mountains back close to town.
It's such a beautiful sight to see while up there at mid point before you go across Green Mountain. There is a place that was donated for public enjoyment use by the "Dillards " Part of the Cherokke National Forest which has 3 ponds that each year they have free kids fishing day at. And we stopped by there first for a picnic by the ponds.
Wild Maples already changes colors for fall
On Green Mountain working our way down to reach the town you see in the picture
Beautiful Wild Flowers along and up the outer banks of the gravel road across the mountain
Beautiful gravel winding road through the mountains
It's beauty to enjoy whether your up on the mountain looking out or down here on my front porch looking up into it. And as the trees turn more and more in autumns colors it will look just like a big rolling country patch quilt of many colors.
I can't wait to go back up to the top of Bald Mountain in October with our grandson on a day out with picnic planned which he has never seen before.
Hope you will enjoy my pictures shared of a wonderful day out going Up, Across & Back Down our beautiful mountains we are blessed to have here in eastern TN.
I'd love to hear about your Fall colors you are blessed to see in your spot in the world :) Julie
