Summer Season on the "temperate" Blue Ridge

We are well into summer season now with our typical pattern of pleasantly warm days and cool nights up here at 2900+ ft elevation. The woods and field edges are lush and green -- with first Blackeyed Susans just starting to bloom.  The spring-fed pond is always available for a refreshing dip or you can walk down into the woods and stick your feet into the cool creeks. Nighttime entertainment includes fireflies sparkling in the trees with frogs providing the soundtrack.  Morning birds songs are the "wake-up symphony."

Check out the links under the Area Attractions tab to find out about local places and events of interest -- including music venues, craft shows and markets, festivals, wineries, and hiking opportunities.
