The mountains are calling, smart fishies, and breathtaking

The view from the end of the driveway at my favorite mountain hideaway.  This guy was quietly fly fishing one afternoon.

A gloomy walk, but still beautiful at the dam on Lake Chatuge in nearby Hiawassee, Georgia.  The fishermen speeding away had been there awhile, with no luck, and some fish actually jumped out of the water when the boat left.  Laughing behind their fins, no doubt.  :)

Look at those mountains in the distance.  Just breathtaking, I think.  I stopped my car and got out to gaze at the view for a moment.

These photos were from a visit Labor Day weekend and I will be there again in a few hours.           "The mountains are calling, and I must go." John Muir

Incredibly beautiful.
I agree with Jan, it is no wonder you are itching to return.
Have a WONDERFUL time.

Hi Lynn - if I had a place of serenity like that to disappear to ... to enjoy the land, the water, the fish, the family - then I'd be off lickety-split too ... enjoy your break - cheers Hilary

Why is it when we see the beauty of the mountains - do we get called to come back?
