In The Good Ole USA - Driving Down Highway 129

Hello Everyone!  As we were leaving our mountain cabin in Robbinsville, North Carolina to return home from leaf looking, I put my camera in the front seat beside me just in case we saw some pretty photo opportunities.

We packed up the Fall wreath, took one last look across the mountain at the beautiful leaves changing and then we went on our way toward home.

As you see in the below map photo our route home takes us South along Highway 129 through Robbinsville, traveling on through Andrews and then Murphy.   Highwayy 129 is known for it's scenic mountain valley vistas and curvy mountain roads.  It is a beautiful scenic route traveling across the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina.

In the below photo notice all the different color trees on the mountain.

We loved seeing all the beautiful trees all along the way.

Shortly before we left the Robbinsville downtown area I snapped a photo of this old
stone church with the pretty Fall wreath above the door.

As you can see in the below photo the colorful tree below was
beginning to loose leaves, but it was still pretty.

And again we see a stone wall of the porch of this old home similar to the 
stone in the photo of the church in the previous photo.

Had to stop and snap a photo of the red leaves of these two large trees seen below.

As we continued on our way down Highway 129  this old home completely surrounded by these huge old Oak trees caught my eye.  It did not look like anyone lived there.

Can't you envision how very charming this beautiful yard and lovely 
old farmhouse could look with a little tender loving care.

And, again, if you look closely, we see the same stone design for this porch 
as in the church and previous old house photos.

Amazing how greenery can still grow out of what appears to be a solid stone wall.

Don't you love the "bend in the road."  I always wonder what lies ahead.

We noticed these two little country farmhouse looking buildings nestled
among all these beautiful colorful trees.

Just outside Murphy, North Carolina we left Highway 129 and turned onto Highway 60, which will take us to the Georgia line and on into the big city of Atlanta, Georgia.

As we entered into the charming little town of Blue Ridge, Georgia we wanted to stop off at Mercier-Orchids to find apples to take home to different family members.

After finding the most delicious looking apples for everyone at the Mercier Orchards we continued on our way on toward Atlanta and on back home to Tallahassee.

In the below photo we see the last mountain range we will see as we head on South.  What an extremely beautiful day it was with the magnificant blue skies and beautiful white clouds all along the way.

Thank you for joining us as we traveled down the beautiful scenic
Highway 129  and on into the great state of Georgia.

Christmas is rapidly approaching!  We all know what a busy time it is for everyone.  As we all go on our way preparing for this magical time of year, I wish you much happiness and the very best during this joyful season wherever you may be.
