UP CHILDERS' BARN ROAD, 5X7", SOLD


Living on the side of a mountain is not easy...all those hills to climb, clinging on the edge of the bluff....


The natives in North Carolina, live mostly in the valleys and the foothills, the summer folk live on top of the mountains.


I live in the valley.  There is an old saying "It's better to have a friend with a boat, than to have a boat" which I have changed to "It's better to have a friend with a mountain view, than to haul everything you own up the side of a mountain!"

Purchase here
SOLD

Nice one, Carol. I do have a soft spot for those old barns.

Getting up the steep "driveway" (hah!) to my parent's mountaintop home was a terrifying ordeal, particularly when my daddy said make sure to hang to the outside of that last hairpin turn or you "won't make it" -- Can you say "white knuckles!"

Lovely colors and so reminiscent of the NC mountain landscape.

Bises,
Genie

You tell a grand story with so few, simple, and well placed strokes. Thanks for sharing!
