Oh, my! I marvel at my own idiocy sometimes...! How could I for one moment believe that I can truly share with all of you, the incredible beauty that is my homestead and its surrounds right now...short of taking you by the hand and leading you through these living cathedrals! I am feeling like a dog in the butcher shop! I know I cannot capture it all...I know I can't begin to convey the reality, I want every scene in safe in my little electronic miracle-box....and I keep trying to cram every one in
Yesterday we made a trip to the little nearby town of Union, needing some pig feed. We traveled over Sarton (Mtn)(folks around here don't call it Sarton Mtn. but rather just Sarton), which is about 300 feet higher than our farm. The color was truly at peak. Camera permanently glued to my hand, I was constantly begging MM to stop for "just one more shot" and even the audacity of catching scenes as we whizzed by (my choice..MM would stop anywhere I wanted, as always).
But alas! How can these photos, sent to you through layers and layers of electronic gates, even begin to show you true colors, and scenic splendor. All I can say is you'll at least get an idea of the glory to behold. For the real thing, though, you'll have to set foot on the forest floor sometime at Peak of the Leaf in the Southern Alleghenys/Appalachians.
