A dramatic vista is provided to the casual viewer from the Jefferson residence at Monticello when looking northwest from the rear of the manor. The Blue Ridge Mountains are visible in the partly sunny skies of this dramatic autumn scene.
*_"I arrived in good health at home this day se’nnight. The mountain had then been in bloom ten days,"
Thus wrote Jefferson on reaching Albemarle for a spring visit; and finding the family away, he added: “The bloom of Monticello is chilled by my solitude.”_
