For purple mountains majesty

I saw it today at dawn as I was driving west on 64. I was half way up to Afton when the sun peeked over the eastern hills and bathed the trees to the north in a red glow. The tops of the trees were all covered in ice, and on the south, across the Greenwood valley, were the purple mountains. Every little dip was full of fog, the hills were purple topped with white. Quite a spectacle and no camera at hand. Sometimes we forget the magic of our scenic location, yet it provides the backdrop for our community success, inspiration for our quality of life, and a call to stewardship.

Why was I there? The Artisan conference in Roanoke.
