Roan Mountain

My husband and I love to visit the Blue Ridge Mountains in June.  Our wedding anniversary is in June and  my husband has always scheduled time off so we could celebrate in our favorite part of the country. He retired last December, so time off is no longer an issue. 

That made it hard to decide exactly when to head to the mountains and even harder to decide when to head home, but the anniversary remains in June, so here we are. We have often visited Roan Mountain on our trips.  Sometimes we get there too early and the rhododendrons are not yet blooming.  Sometimes we get there too late and most of the blooms have gone by. 

This year, we hit it just right.

Could there be a more beautiful place for a picnic?
