SkyWatch Friday: Blowing Rock North Carolina


I came home today from Blowing Rock, NC which is in the northwestern part of my state. I am posting early for skywatch because I haven't put anything new up on my blog while I was out of town.

The shot above was the sun setting over the Moses Cone Manor House in Blowing Rock and the shot below was taken through the trees during a walk on one of the trails at that park.

Beautiful sky over that grand old home! One of my uncles lived in Boone and that area is one of my favorite places in NC.
