Grayson Highlands Festival

I thought I would share with you all some of our pictures from our visit to the Grayson Highlands Festival today with the Horn’s.  We saw lots of crafts and hand made items.

This was one of the biggest attractions.  The making of molasses.

Here they are pouring the hot fresh made molasses into jars for selling.  We, of course, bought one.

There was lots of food and lots of music.

But these little guys were the main attraction.  They auction off these wild ponies every year.  We stayed for a little of the auction but the rain finally forced us to leave.

It was a really fun day.  I will show you some more of the pictures with the fall colors in my next post.  I hope you all have a great weekend and God bless.

Grayson Highlands State Park

We had so much fun today!  We went with our friends, the Horns, to this place called Grayson Highlands State Park.  It was very beautiful there.  This is one of the first places went.

Lots of old houses set up to walk through and look at.

Then we begin our hike.

The temperature was at least 20 degrees cooler with a heavy wind.  It actually felt like we were walking in air conditioning.

Here’s one of the main things we came to see.  Wild ponies.  We did not see very many but the few we did see definitely made the trip worthwhile.  I had so many beautiful pictures of the scenery it was very difficult to choose what picture to post.  I know this is a lot of pictures but I really could have put much more.  Finally a happy crew ready to start the climb back down.

I pray your day was as nice as ours.  Take care and God bless.
