Week 7 of 52: Love Story. Tell a love story in one image. • . . Kids and summer rain storms. How could there ever be a better love story? Jumping in muddy puddles with the warm feel of sweet summer time. I was probably suppose to get all sappy for this one, but, as usual with me, I went a different direction. Enjoy! • . . #dogwoodweek6 #dogwood2019 #dogwood52

Tried Mitchell a month ago and was victim of the Parkway's big shutdown for winter weather. Tried again last weekend and had the whole park to myself. Not a soul around apart from the rangers, due to abysmal weather conditions. The high was 25 degrees, it was raining heavily and the wind was so forceful in the open areas, I couldn't close my car doors or walk without leaning my entire body into the effort. And of course I left my waterproof hiking boots at home and had to hike in my worst Nike tennis shoes. And yet when I hit the trail, I was perfectly ok with it all. I usually tell those who come with me in rough conditions that if you dress for the weather, you won't mind it. And that's true and I prepared (mostly), but I also drove almost two and a half hours to a location that I knew fully well could've been closed off by the time I got there. And I was good with that, too. While I was driving home, I asked myself why I do this - and I couldn't nail down the answer, which now seems kind of obvious. But when I was back at home, looking at some of the photos, like the one here, I could see the peace of the scene and the small break in the chaos that I didn't notice when I was there because it was being unconsciously felt, instead. I would move up and out into the violence of the open weather and then dip back down into the mostly serene forest. My heart rate was in sync with those changes. And I loved it. I think it's that mix of feelings that the experience and that nature gives me that keeps me agreeable with whatever the travel distance is and whatever awaits me at the end. #neverstopexploring

Every morning that passes and I watch the sun shoot through the valleys I think about you buddy. This was not the way it was suppose to go. You saved a life as yours was taken. I just don’t get it. I just don’t know why. But, it’s not up to us. The Lord has a plan for everyone. This was you path Massie. You will be missed. We love you brother. •

New addition to the weird tree collection. I've passed by this scraggly fella many times on the Parkway over the last few years and have never felt the conditions were right to stop and snap it in its proper glory. On this day, the foggy atmosphere changed that. This tree and the lil guy in front of it were all I could see. Twas the final stop and shot of the day.

Our hearts are heavy today with the passing of an OG in the region, David Massie. If you knew David you knew he would do anything he could for you. He worked for Burton Snowboards for over a decade and was always a fixture at the events Burton hosted throughout the region. He was also a living donor. He had donated one of his kidneys to his nephew Mac. So, on this day we celebrate you David Massie. You will be missed greatly. We love you and rest easy brother 🧡🧡🧡 • . . • #AlwaysDialed • • #HighQualityFun • • #AppTerrainPark • • #FBRBBR • . . #snow #snowboard #ski #northcarolina #mountains #shrednc #winter #actionsports #blueridgemountains #visitnc #snowboarding #itsbetterherethanthere

If you have ever been to Boone, you probably have driven down 421 and saw the amazing overlook that leads you into city limits. I thought what better way to show off this city than get on top of the parkway during sunset and get a nice long exposure to show it off! Let me know what ya’ll think!

Linville Falls from the other side. In my other picture you can see the water rushing around a rock and this is where it drops off. Really mean it when I say it’s the most unique waterfall I’ve seen to date Sony a6300 + 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 ISO 100 | f/5.0 | 1/640s ———————————————————— #nc #northcarolina #appalachian #visitnc #discover_carolinas #sony #sonyalpha #ashevilletrails #waterfall #waterfalls #adventureenthusiasts #southernstatesco #blueridgemountains #itsbetterherethanthere #828isgreat #blueridge #mountains #appalachianmountains #river #gorge #water #nature #forest #landscape #hiking #outdoors #westernnc #linvillegorge #photography #landscapephotography
