The view from my perch on the mountain

Red dawn

I’ve been told the number of foggy mornings in August will tell you how many snows to expect over the coming winter.

So far this year we’re six for six.

Last year we had fog every morning in August and the winter brought us nearly 5 feet of snow.

Here’s hoping this one is a bit milder.

As the sun cleared the horizon it brought a promise that the fog would be short lived…….

……as well as a hint of the heat to come.

It also brought glimpses of the deep blue sky that comes with low humidity….

…..and as the haze lifts the mountains once again come into view, with passing cloud shadow revealing why this is called the Blue Ridge.

    Lovely photos as usual, It doesn’t seem so long ago you were sending snow shots, now you’re talking about them again, it can’t be so close, but let’s hope it’s a milder winter. regards to all + Sam
