My first Blue Ridge Parkway sunrise with my hubby. If you’d like to watch it without having to get up at 4am.. click the link to the video. https://youtu.be/OrQbZXyLdKc
I again spent the field trip drive making new friends with CCoH members. I’ve spoken with all of them but it was nice to learn a little more about Diane, Allison & David.
The first photos I shot were of the cool looking sky before we ever left the parking lot. Continue reading
I’ve wanted to see what Max Patch was all about. We’ve been to Roan Mountain and saw the balds there but I wanted to see Max Patch too. Continue reading
We had this sandy shore waterfall all to ourselves. It’s an off the beaten path waterfall in Dupont, that at times we couldn’t see the trail. My type A personality is kicking in though because I don’t know the name for sure. It may be Upper Wintergreen or Upper Grassy Falls. No trash, no crowds so I’m going to stay on the bandwagon that doesn’t give trail details, but I’m sure if you really need to find it you can find directions just like we did. We went after a fairly heavy rain and were going over some trees in the path (I use that word lightly) that looked to be a perfect snake haven.
Note the little waterfall in the pic below- hubby saw after going over the rocks he’s standing on. Took a picture with his ancient flip phone to show me to see if I wanted to get back there to see. What my mind saw, and what was on his phone, were to completely different sizes. I decided to ask from then on if the rocks I was climbing over were larger or smaller than the waterfall. There is another waterfall hidden somewhere that we haven’t found yet- but we will someday. Continue reading
We love finding and seeing waterfalls!
To the people who share the beauty on their private property- THANK YOU! Continue reading
We’ve been getting tons of rain but hubby and I saw a day to go hiking so we took it. We managed to stay mostly dry other than my feet because I wore the wrong shoes. The waterfalls were great with all the rain and the trails were not crowded. Continue reading
We visited Linville Falls before, but we were on the wrong side of the river for what I’d envisioned. Yesterday we went back and found the exact spot I wanted to shoot. We’d been waiting on some rain followed by a nice day and yesterday was it. By the time we got there the basin was pretty much in the shadows, but hey it was a great day for a hike and the falls are stunning. First waterfall trip from Kevin Adams new book.
