“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
– John Muir
The Great Smokey Mountains have always been one of my favorite places to visit, explore, and recharge. I captured these images in the very early spring, in a valley near Cherokee, NC where the cabins and the woods seem frozen in time.
