This is an actual photo of one of your backroads? Color me jealous. I love my family here, but I'm so tired of living in the desert.
Yes... I stopped along the road, on my way to the local landfill and took the pic with my phone... The temps reached 72 that Saturday morning... and dropped forty degrees by the next day! Crazy South Jersey!
We have those here in North Carolina also -- what a treasure they are, year round.
Sigh... and now most of our trees are bare (and I have lots of raking to do!)
