simple things

When we recall the past, we usually find that it is the simplest things - not the great occasions - that in retrospect give off the greatest glow of happiness.
--Bob Hope (1903-2003) Actor and Comedian.  

Came across this photo of the old, weathered ramp leading to the lookout platform at the Rhododendron Gardens atop Roan Mountain. It was recently replaced by a snazzier, sturdier platform, which is good -- but I'll miss the rustic look and feel of the old one.


  1. just went to Roan Gardens with the new viewing platform. I miss the old one too. And there are 'new' trails covered with concrete. Narrow and hard to walk on, but great for handicap or people with mobility issues. Change.
