This past weekend we had perfectly lovely springtime weather here in our Southern mountains. With a few free hours Saturday afternoon we drove out on the Blue Ridge Parkway and stopped at Moses Cone Manor to do some sketching. Our trees here have not leafed out yet, but the sky was clear and the sun felt warm.
We settled on the hillside along side the manor house. The Professor and I sketched the view of Bass Lake. Then Kiddo and I played tourists and browsed through the gift shop.
Here is the view of Bass Lake looking across the carriage trial at Moses Cone Manor. Soon there will be more green in this landscape with leaves on those trees. For now it's nice to enjoy these rare sunny spring days whenever we can.
