Catawba Rhodo

Here on Roan Mountain the rhododendron look over the blue ridges in the distance.  This past weekend was the 65th Roan Mountain Rhododendron Festival.  The weather was tough for those of us that came out for the celebration.  Our first trip to the top was in heavy clouds and light rain.  A second drive back up the mountain several hours later brought up an exciting adventure.  The temp. was near 58 and with clear skies the visibility was really good.  The storms had passed leaving us a real treat.  It was really something to see.
