Mountain Day Trip Part 2 ~ Rural Thursday

On Easter weekend my family took a trip up into the mountains of NC & VA. 
You can read about it on this post - A Glorious Day in the Mountains
Here's a few more pictures. Hope you enjoy!

Clicking on the images makes them bigger...and easier to see!

An awesome sign for this lumber company in Union Grove, NC! 
It's made from a saw blade and the silhouette's are just so cool!

Then as we were driving down one of the back roads, we came across this sign...


What a great name for a road!
Can you just imagine someone asking, 
"What road do you live on?" 

And if you click on this image, you can see how unique this old place is. It's empty now and no sign to indicate what it once was but it looks like it might have been a mill at one time. I would personally love to live in that building! This was on up the mountain toward Fancy Gap, VA. (I think)

Images are mine. Please don't take them without asking. Not that anyone would want them. I'm just sayin'. 

I'm linked up on Rural Thursday.
