It’s 8:02AM on my wrist, and with a single turn of the key, 175 horses come alive. Off we go. Two Lens Lugger in the back seat; myself and another in the front. Anyone have any places they want to go, I ask? Not expecting any answers, at least it forces us to think about it.

Our pre plan was to go up 276, cross over the Blue Ridge Parkway, then back down Rt 215 with a casual hot dog & beans picnic. It’s bright out, not a cloud in the sky. Not the kind of weather one would hope for. Mist would be better. Clouds would be better. Rain would be better. But, the challenge would be less. So, we’re off, saying possibility of low hanging mist. And we do have long morning shadows. That can be helpful. And we also are noticing some lingering spring green at this altitude.

Just around the bend, off to the right, a flash of some brilliant colors in the overhanging shadows in the Pigeon River. We park ahead and walk back to that spot. I’m thinking this could be interesting, four different set of eyes. Hmm. Here are some…

Next we make it on up to the Parkway and free shoot.
