On top of the world

Early morning on the Blue Ridge Parkway
A beautiful morning of brilliant blue sky and mountains nestled in ever-changing clouds greeted husband Walter and me at the Waterrock Knob Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway during a recent vacation.

Van and camper at 5,820 feet
With only one other vehicle in the spacious parking area, we pulled our van, with pop-up camper towed behind, alongside a picnic table perched on the edge of the overlook. The scene above greeted me when I was returning from a visit to the rustic but clean facilities.

When I drew closer, Walter had pulled out our camping chairs, positioned them with the perfect view of the mountains, and had hot water heating on our Coleman stove for my hot tea and his (instant) cappuccino. Ahhhh! A perfect early morning treat!
