Sunset from the Blue Ridge Parkway

We were traveling along the Blue Ridge Parkway not too far from Asheville, North Carolina one evening and captured this gorgeous sunset.  Hope you enjoy it.

Hugs,

I especially like the right side of the photo - - with the colors peeking through the trees. My husband and I were just talking about the Blue Ridge Parkway with someone this weekend. On one of our early trips to NY State to visit family, we decided to take the BR Pkwy because it looked like a shorter route and we had heard it was beautiful. Long story short is we did not realize the slower speed limit until we were traveling it - - - and the fact that it was a long way to the next exit. Needless to say, it was never part of our route again - - - when we were in a hurry to complete the trip!
