Afton Mountain

 We live at the very foot of Afton Mountain, and have to go over it fairly often. This first picture is what we see when coming home. It is on the very top of the mountain, looking down at the valley we live in.


Here are some other shots of the Blue Ridge Mountains.




A song of ascents.

 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
 My help comes from the Lord,

    the Maker of heaven and earth.

 He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;


Psalm 121

First, let me thank you, for saying my blog is pretty (yesterday). I say 'yesterday', because I change it so often. -smile- Thank you so much!

I did think it is pretty, and soft. The look I was going for, after finding the pretty pic, which I used to make my Background. Not being able to find a soft pic, to go with the Background, I rotated the Background, on its side, and make my Header, of it!!!!

I can go into such detail here, because I know you really appreciate how your blog looks. And so, appreciate how others, work on How Their Blog Looks. -smile-

I so appreciate your being, in Pretty Blog Land!

Oh how gorgeous, Ginny! I can't even imagine! We live in the endlessly flat land of northern Indiana. Not a mountain in sight except when driving past the landfill on the south end of town. :-D ~Andrea xoxo

I have always wanted to visit the Blue Ridge mountains. Every picture I’ve seen is so beautiful. Also, I used to love the Waltons and that is where they lived.

So beautiful! I love when we drive through the mountains on one of our road trips!
