Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive

As we headed home the sky in the park was wonderful. The mountains never looked better. What a perfect day. These where all taken on Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive.

Late afternoon the sky turned cloudy making the deep blue much paler. We had a great day, the weather was warm, and the mountains were putting on a show. It was beautiful!!
