So I went for a drive before camping the other evening and found 2 cool old buildings. The Acuf Chapel 1786 first Methodist Episcopal Church in Tennessee and a barn with an old sign on the side:
The next shots are the morning shot from my tent what an awesome way to wake up with the sun and the birds singing -my shots of the trail the morning light thru the trees was amazing and a random turtle because why not.
Met this dude on the hike said his trail name was “smokey” he was cool but all he wanted to talk about was how only I could prevent forest fires which seemed like an awful lot of pressure I mean every should do their part
The beautiful colors at Sunrise and Sunset reflected by the snow always remind me of a mix of fire and ice.
Here is a Sunrise early on January 2nd taken outside my work.
That same day I had to travel east across the high plains through an amazing scene left by an Ice Fog that had moved in New Years night. We only get those a few times in winter when the conditions are right for fog not often in the dry air of winter and more rarely no wind!
and to end some Sunset pics from Christmas Day out at a good friends ranch.
Want to go on a nice casual hike in Northeast Tennessee / Western North Carolina / Southwest Virginia? This site gives me the opportunity to share my family's simpler hiking experiences. I hope that my posts will lead you into the great beauty that the Tennessee / North Carolina / Virginia mountains has to offer.
