Mountain Stream

There is a gravel road that follows a mountain stream up a mountain… Whenever we pass this little falls on the side of the road we begin to feel like we are almost home…

Now, the funny part about this is, that over the past decade we have spent maybe a month toward the top of this road.  Over the course of six vacations we have stayed in three different houses up this road for a total of less than a month.  On the day I snapped this shot we were on a day trip from our Smoky Mountain Vacation this spring… And after a week in the Smokies, we still felt like driving up this road in the rain was coming home.

On our first stay in the mountains I took this shot that hung on the wall of my office for a number of years as a reminder of what I was missing…

Justus Road Waterfall

 

As you can see, not a lot has changed in the nine years between these two shots. The upper one was this June while the lower one was in July of 2004.
