Country roads, take me home…

The first light of day is a magical time in the Great Smoky Mountains.  I know John Denver was singing about West Virginia, but I see no reason to be a purist about it since Denver wasn’t born with that name and never lived in West Virginia.  Still, it is a beautiful song that reminds me of my “home far away”.  This image was shot from the back porch of the Bane cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains.  (2 November, 2003  Waynesville, North Carolina)
