in pursuit of peak color

Peaking over my shoulder, Jonny just teased, “So you’re sharing photos from Big Meadow….again.”

Yes, I am.

Monday afternoon we made the last minute decision get in the van and head for Skyline drive.  The fall color was supposed to be peaking and we didn’t want to miss it.  We also really needed to get out of the house.  For those of you living in cramped quarters, you will understand that even on the best of days, things are extremely cozy.  On the worst of days, for instance, on day 13 of a remodeling project, it’s sometimes best just to leave.  So we did.

The sky darkened as we neared the mountains and then rain began to pour.  It didn’t last long though and then there were two rainbows!  All in all we drove two hours each way to spend about an hour driving slowly down Skyline drive and about an hour on Big Meadow.  We watched the sunset and lingered until darkness drove us back to the van.  We arrived home to our trashed house around 11 p.m.

We are back up to two functioning toilets now and our washer and dryer are back in place.  There is still more work to do, but we are past the hardest point of the project.

A little news:
