2011 Highland Maple Festival ... the back roads

Part of the reason we love Highland County is the back roads, the woods, mountains, and hidden nooks and crannies. A road we took carried us up onto one of the mountain ranges where there was still some snow on the ground and we were a stone's throw from West Virginia. We've been driving those back roads together since we were in our 20s and still enjoy the beauty and quiet of Highland.

My kind of road ...

... and my kind of serenity.

If only the old broken-down fences could tell about the people who went before us....

Rivers and streams were at full bank after heavy downpours earlier in the week. Here rushing water crashes down a waterfall on the side of the mountain.
