Pics from Asheville!  
Reporting from Asheville, here's a link to photos of our day. 

The first full day of our Asheville trip...  

Be aware, these are unedited photos - we yanked 'em off the camera and tossed them directly into a photobucket album.  We can't put anything on this laptop and need more room on the cameras for tomorrow, when we drive northward in search of snow.  So some shots are blurry or should have been cropped, but y'all will have to bear with us.

The first handful of pics are from overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Then we have some closer shots of icicles we found high on the parkway near Hwy 80.  And lastly, a lot of shots of spectacular storm clouds in the sky as we drove home along the back roads.

Okay, I know you've said numerous times that you hate the color of that car, but I'm telling you now... you'd be seriously pimping in Missouri if you had that color of car up here. Not even kidding. That's the color car my MOM wants to own in the future.

Other than that, though... sleek! In my opinion. But I'm not a die-hard car person, so...

Aww, and how cute! Floridians wearing jackets and taking pictures of trees like people who live in the desert! *runs*

Jerk. Those are pictures of mountains, rivers, and some gorgeous vistas. They happen to have trees in them.

You can *have* the car's paint job. I hate it.

Gods, I haven't lusted after a road trip this bad in *years*. O_o Those first shots look like they could have been taken from Skyline Drive, up here, they're so gorgeous. And the icicles!! That first shot demands to be made into icons. O_O

*hugs you guys*

Man, I need a vacation. O_o

I laughed. Cuz you looked very much like athe cool kid posing next to his car. Which isn't bad looking like I imagined from what Anissa's told me about it.

One of those icicle pictures is my favorite! The storm clouds were pretty too. I wanna go on a road trip too!

Incidentally, I just found out today that my brother lives in Asheville.

What's your shirt say?

It's a similar sentiment to my icon here. "Genius by birth, slacker by choice."

I have a matching shirt that says "You are in the presence of genius."

Nice piccies! Very pretty there - I can see why you want to relocate! :)

Thanks for sharing. I hope you both are having an awesome time. :D

Awesome photos! I've always wanted to see the "Blue Ridge" Mountains. But man, where is the snow!? Anyway, at least the weather is nice; who knows, maybe it will happen!:D

Pretty piccies! Looks cold there. I've always wanted to go to Ashville, supposed to be a very historical place.

Oh, how pretty! Looks a lot like the Pacific Northwest, really. Like someone up there said, I love how you guys are taking pictures of trees like you've never seen one before! XD Those icicles are really something, and what a pretty sunset sky! Anyway, I'm glad to see you've made it okay.

Is that you or Anissa standing in front of the car?

Dangit, we'll never show you guys mountain views again.

The dark-haired girl in front of the car is Lois. The redhead inside the car is me (Anissa).

I laughed at your comment, then I saw the icon and burst into a huge wheezing giggle fit. XD

Hey, I'm not complaining about the trees - kid who wanted to be a dryad, remember? I just thought it was funny, seeing as EVERYTHING in the Pacific Northwest looks like that. :D

Aww, you guys are cute. Also, I like your hair, both very pretty and suitable colors. ♥

Those were some beautiful pics and I so want to take a road trip now. The farthest I go is to Tennessee to see my friends, and it is a pretty drive but not like yours. Well sounds like you two are having a good time. Hope you find some snow, and I think we have the same type of camera, or it looked like it in one of the earlier pics anyway.. Have fun ladies, I'm back to work tomorrow, at least I hope so. HUGS
