An old wooden mill with a water wheel.We live in the northern Piedmont area of North Carolina. On a day trip, we can go to the mountains or the beach and have a great time and be back home before bedtime.

Last week, we packed a picnic lunch and went for a drive to the mountains where the trees are peak in color. One of our favorite places to go is Mabry Mill which is a 3 hour drive from our house. It's a nice day trip and the countryside is beautiful all the way. I call it the scenic route to the mountains. Mabry Mill is located in the southern part of the Virginia mountains on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

I love experiencing the change of scenery, especially in the fall of the year when there's a chill in the air and the trees are so colorful. After leaving the Blue Ridge Parkway, we stopped at a roadside store and bought a bushel of golden delicious mountain apples.

I have been freezing apples, frying apples, drying apples, making apple cobbler and enjoying an apple a day. Love these golden delicious apples. Just might have to go back to the mountains and get another bushel. A day trip will do it.

We went there while vacationing during the summer of 2019 and saw this mill and took pictures. The drive and the mill are absolutely beautiful!

Can you post a summer picture of the mill? We have only gone during the fall season.
