Anyway, enough of that. Our hills are beautiful with color. We took a drive today out in the country and wound up at War Eagle Mill again. We go there several times a year. Here are some of the pictures from our area and also the War Eagle Mill area. This is picture heavy.
These were taken on my way home from work one evening and some of them are from our yard and in our neighborhood.
From the parking lot
I took this while at a stop light. It is by the office.
House across the street
The next ones are of our outing today.
The colors behind this house have already been at their peak. They are not as bright as some of the others.
This family has a lot of wood cut for heating this winter. Most of these homes are very rural and with the ice storm we had last January and being without power for 30 days, they are now prepared with lots of wood. It is no fun being without power for that long.
One of the old abandoned closed businesses at Sharp's Farm by War Eagle Mill.
I posted about War Eagle last summer but here are some shots of it in the fall and some interesting views.
This brick pillar plus one more is all that holds up the bridge above. It is a one lane bridge that is very old. I don't like driving on bridges but this one is really scary.
The water wheel that powers the grist mill inside.
This is the restaurant on the 3rd floor of the mill. They serve really good soups, sandwiches and cobblers. We had lunch in there today.
You have to climb these 2 flights of stairs to get to the restaurant. There are no elevators here, very primitive.
After lunch we headed home. We snapped a few more photos on the way home.
I hope you have enjoyed fall in my part of the country. It is very interesting to see other parts of the country and see your fall and color.
Everyone have a very blessed week. Hopefully I will be back more often than I have been here lately.
