Winter on the Parkway

Generally, winter is my least favorite season.  I prefer the hot days of summer and the striking foliage of autumn to the bitter cold and the short days that winter brings.  However, my anti-winter feelings tend to melt a bit when the snow begins to fall.  Snow makes beautiful the starkness of the winter months, and, perhaps more importantly, gives us an excuse to drink hot chocolate in excess.  Recently, we've gotten a lot of snow here in Western North Carolina; at my house in Weaverville (just fifteen minutes north of Asheville), we have around a foot of snow.  Today, my family decided to enjoy that snow from the Blue Ridge Parkway, a beautiful senic road that winds through North Carolina and Virginia, and offers some of the best views and hiking in the area.  It was an awesome day.
