Spring 2007 in the Blue Ridge

The return of spring to the Blue Ridge is a joyous occasion! I hope that these images will show you why I feel this way and perhaps inspire you to get out and enjoy spring 2007 when it makes its appearance in your area…

All of the images were taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway this year at the lower elevations near the James River. There is still plenty of spring colors to come along the 500 miles of the parkway so if you can make the trip I’m sure you will enjoy the beauty of the mountains awakening!
