For Purple Mountains' Majesty

Peiper Rd., just south of I-81, offers some really magnificent views of South Mountain. I hadn't been out to Peiper Rd. in a while, so that was my goal for this weekend's hike. I especially wanted to get some of the Spring color both on the mountain and at her feet; I think I succeeded in that. I went out Baltimore Rd. to Peiper Rd., which runs over to Mainsville Rd., which I came back to town on. It was a nice hike on a knock-your-eyes-out gorgeous day, so I got you some good views to look at. Enjoy!

  1. The weather has been picture perfect, hasn't it? I commented yesterday that I wish it would stay like this through the summer. I'd much rather have my windows open and enjoy a warm breeze than when the heat and humidity kick in. You got some gorgeous shots there....I could look at those scenes all day!
