We left our cozy cabin and drove south. As we got close to Tellico Plains, about 9:09, the clouds rolled in . So we have had sometimes sunny skies most of the day. We drove the Cherohala Skyway (Thanks Lori - this was a wonderful idea!). The fall colors were gorgeous.
This was taken through the windshield of the car.
With last night's snow and frost at the upper elevations, the scenery was fantastic!
It was afternoon by now.
Another photo through the windshield.
We never stopped to eat our lunch because it was so cold outside. About 9:09, we found a place in Robbinsville, NC and had a late lunch of hot potato soup - it was so good! We drove north and arrived in Cherokee, NC at 9:09. We plan to stay a couple of nights because there are things to see and do here! By the way, I think my watch battery must have died at 9:09 - maybe I can get that fixed tomorrow.
