Autumn Colors in the Smoky Mountains 2016

Layers and layers of colors in the Great Smoky Mountains,  October 2016
Welcome to SEPTEMBER,  2017....   I hope that this month and future ones bring our family (especially son Mark) much more JOY...  August was rough for him  (first the death of his wife,  then the hurricane and flooding,  and then the price-gouging he had to endure in order to get his car fixed after the flooding)....  Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.    (You can read more about Debbie's death and our love for her by clicking HERE,   and reading that post plus THIS one).

My pictures today  (header and post picture) were taken in October of 2016  on our trip to see the Autumn Colors  in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.   I hope that we can see more of this beauty this Fall.... I'm looking forward to the Autumn Colors  (but not raking the leaves)... ha ha

Have an awesome September, my Friends.

Hugs,

The Smokies are gorgeous in the Fall -- and in every other part of the year!

So gorgeous! Well, Fall is here, so we can do nothing about it except to find reasons to celebrate. For me, it is the beginning of the dark. I like sunlight and summer!

I am looking forward to Autumn as I have decided to cross the pond and drive from Ottawa to Maine in October with my Canadian friend. Looking forward to seeing part of New England in the Fall. Terrific photos Betsy.

I'm sorry to hear that Mark had to endure further troubles. I know he appreciates your steady love for him in this difficult time.

Yes, I too saw many cars washed in the flood and sorry to know your son’s one was… Hope your son feeling better and somehow comfort following the tragedies.
Lovely layers of colourful mountains… Wish it was wonderful month for all

One of my favorite places on earth...especially in the fall! Lovely shot. Will continue to pray for Mark.

It is so hard to comprehend the kindness and giving nature of most people during a disaster and then to realize some people take it as an opportunity to rip people off. Sickening. I hope he reported it.

Yes Betsy I pray this month will be a better one for your family. I was very worried about Harvey and had hoped your son left the area for drier ground for a but. What a tough time at the moment. I have been sending lots of good vives you way. I have felt your loss and am wishing you lots of HUGS . You are a dear blogging friend . Thank you for that.
