For a year I've been planning to photo-document a trip down Squirrel Spur, a winding road down the mountain with some of the most beautiful views in our area. I finally remembered the camera when we headed down toward Mount Airy for errands yesterday, and the weather was glorious for photos. My camera can't capture the real beauty, only a vague idea comes across of the glory of standing beside this road and looking out across these soft rolling mountains. When I came back I found an email in my box directing me to this new photo blog: CTG's Photos. To see the real beauty of Squirrel Spur, check out the stunning views he captured. (Folks might recognize this photographer from commentary on Hillbilly, Please.)
