Linville Caverns 07-13-2019 13.16.36_-sm

I’d been to Linville Caverns so long ago that no part of it look familiar or was tucked away in my memory. That may be a good thing because it mostly it was wet, cramped and the only thing I really heard was to watch our heads. We were with family so that made it all okay, just spending time with them. I took four photos but the only one I liked was the cobweb I saw while we were waiting. Continue reading

What I learned about Blue Ghost

Leave the camera at home and just enjoy it, that’s what I learned.

Lake Julian, WNC Nature Center followed by Biltmore.

I’m months late in posting, so I’m going with the better late than never idea.

My friend June had checked out Lake Julian and she was game to show me what she found. Looks like a neat place especially if you happen to catch a skull rowing race. I didn’t see anyone on the water but I did hear, then spot a Piliated woodpecker. The railroad trestle is neat too. Although last time June was there they told her it was nice to walk out on it. She didn’t and was grateful when a train when over it while she was still there. Continue reading
