Down in the valley...

Down in the valley, valley so low
Hang your head over, hear the wind blow
Hear the wind blow, dear, hear the wind blow
Hang your head over, hear the wind blow.

This is just east of Hiawassee, Georgia.

SONY DSLR-A100 1/80 second F/9.0 ISO 100 36 mm (35mm equiv.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

@Sandy Weston: Thanks, Sandy ... and your comment prompted me to add the location ... "just east of Hiawassee, Georgia."

That's an old song from way back, but it's perfect for this lovely landscape. This looks like s scene from somewhere along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

@B. Thomas: I've since added the location ... it's just east of Hiawassee, on the GA/NC border.

I was just going to praise you on the verses from the caption, when I read the comment just above mine :))
so no praise regarding that, but I love the scenery, too, hills, and grass, and trees...the fence...everything it's so you get 5 stars for that! :)

@Maria: Ha, ha ... that's funny ... you're not old enough to remember the song, obviously! The tune popped into my head as I was posting, so I went with it! ;D ... Thank you for your votes!

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

I feel like maybe I've been to this place; is it inside a park? Your lyrics and this photo fit like hand in glove. Bravo, Judy!

@Viewfinder: No, Glenn, it isn't inside a park. It is at a pull-off somewhere along Rt. 2/76 before you head south on 197. I wish I could pinpoint it more closely.

Beautiful view! And the litle poem is so suitable for the mood in the image!

@Japanalia: FYI: these are the words of an old, old song. If you would like to hear a rendition, go to this link:
