This is the final post from my visit to the Cherokee National Forest. This photos are actually not in the forest but of roads and properties just outside the forest. One is an abandoned farm that is for sale. There was proof that it was once loved with the irises and other decorative flowers still coming up in the weeds.
This view does capture images of my growing up – a country road, a barn off to the side, and mountains rising in the background.
Followed the lane on up the mountain toward the edge of the park.
Waited on a wild turkey family to cross the road. DIdn’t get the camera fast enough to get the little chicks.
This is the abandoned home we found it was for sale with the acreage.
It had been a working farm at one time.
Gate to the side yard.
The one car garage on the road – couldn’t you just see a 1930s truck parked in there.
Then it was time to head off the mountain. The view down the road toward town from the garage.
Until next time.
