Mountainscapes of NC

“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.

 

Just After Midnight in the Garden

Savannah, Georgia has always been a favorite getaway for me.  Whether for a quick weekend escape or an extended vacation, I’ve always had a great time there.  The history beckons, the culture throbs, and the underlying weirdness of the city forever holds a place in my heart.  This past weekend, I was able to grab some snapshots from the rooftop of the building I stayed in, as well as from the ground as I tromped around looking for trouble.

Enjoy.
