Festival at Graves Mountain

On Saturday we went to an Apple Harvest Festival at Graves Mountain Lodge in Syria, Virginia. We took a bunch of photos so I'm playing Good, Random, and Fun with them.


Good: It was a beautiful fall day in the Blue Ridge Mountains. People were having fun!

Random: I spotted some barns on the property and wanted to photograph them for The Barn Collective. I had to work to get pictures without cars in them. There were thousands of cars there because a huge crowd had come to this annual event. If we ever go again, we'll have to get there early because the traffic and parking were aggravating.

The Fun: This was a very large festival considering that it was far out in the country! We enjoyed browsing the many booths selling arts and crafts. Frank bought something to eat and we watched cloggers and listened to music. Children were enjoying a variety of family activities.
