Early morning hike on a drizzly day to get some pics of the fall colors in the mountains of northeast Tennessee.
Start of the trail.
Seriously who wouldn’t love to hike this trail.
Fall Colors along the lake shore.
I love the colors along with the deep blue of the water and against the green of the hemlocks.
so pretty and peaceful perfect meditation trail.
Across the beaver pond on another of the floating bridges on the trail.
Even the little trees and plants were decked out in fall colors.
The leaves were the star of the show.
Woods all shining in green and gold.
Mother Nature is the true creative artist as photographers we just record her art.
Last shot from the trail and the sleepy wolf pack.

A walk along the lake shore and the woods. The fall colors are starting to show so it inspired me to get out and take a lil walk.
Along the lake.
Deeper in the woods. Its hard to see in this pick but this tree is huge the first limb to the right is almost 8 feet around.
Sometimes you find odd scenes deep in old woods like this square cut piece of stone. Like an old cold stone altar unwarmed by the bright sun all around it.
Odd twisted vines and stumps of trees were around it. The biggest strand of vines looked like a giant spider striding through a forest.
My brother and I have been making hand carved hiking staffs and walking canes for a while (a photo story on those coming soon) this week I decided to try something different: A hand crafted native style short lance: sorry the pics aren’t great. but not bad for my first attempt.
10 inch lance point, rabbit fur, sinew, and leather
buffalo nickel butt plate with pheasant feather decoration
5 foot total length
