Photo Friday: Drive to Atlanta
I can’t believe it. I just wrote an entire post and it didn’t save. Total rookie mistake. I had started this post yesterday and had all my windows open so I started writing again tonight but apparently I was logged out of my account the whole time. Womp womp. Well I won’t be doing that again anytime soon! But I still wanted to post these pics from our road trip down to Atlanta waaaay back in November that I’ve been mentioning ever since then. So instead of my wonderfully worded post (you’re going to have to trust me on that) I’ll just highlight the pics for you.
First up is the cover of my completed photobook from last year! Remember my goals for this year? One of them was to create a photobook from last year and I’m done! Woo to the hoo.
I loved the layouts from our road trip so much that I grabbed the screen shots from my order. First up is from our our first stop in the Shenandoah Mountains.
We stayed at the Skyland resort, watched a beautiful sunset from an overlook, enjoyed the view of silhouetted trees from our room after the sunset, and had a one-of-a-kind amazingly delicious dinner at their lodge. The resort is located inside the park and is completely isolated from the surrounding towns. The next morning we rose early to hike before the sun rose and then were off to the next stop: Gatlinburg Tennessee.
The pinky purple pic in the middle was the view of the Smokies from our cabin balcony. We spent two days hiking the mountains and loved every minute of it. Sadly we were too late for fall foliage, but instead had some pretty sweet views of icicles down the side of the mountain.
After Gatlinburg, we were back on the road to Atlanta to spend Thanksgiving with my sister and her family. We had a wonderful holiday and it was pretty hard leaving our adorable niece to get back on the road. But we had one more mini-vacation before we got back to PA. We spent one night in Asheville, NC to tour the Candlelight Christmas decorations at the Biltmore Estate.
Sadly, you can’t take pictures inside the estate, but fortunately I can adjust my exposure to get the outdoor shots above. The one on the left was from when we were waiting in line to get inside. I thought it was so cool and eery how the clouds covered the moon above the tower. And the one on the right shows how massive the lit up tree is outside an enormously massive house to begin with.
I’m really sorry this post isn’t more descriptive! I promise to post more when I’m less frustrated with myself. In the meantime I’ll be dreaming of our next “big” vacation, which I still have yet to plan. Suggestions are still welcome Stay safe in the snow tonight!
