Okay, @flapflapglide you wanted more flower photos! Here is dutchman's breeches (Dicentra cucullaria), one of my favorites to look for every year.

Devil’s Backbone. Pocahontas County WV. 💜💜 this is considered the core of the Brown’s Mountain anticline. You can see both the Juniata and the Tuscarora sandstones. It was an incredible sight! #geology #westvirginia #anticline #sedimentaryrocks #sandstone #mothernature #appalachians #orogeny #mountains #takemehomecountryroads

BLUE RIDGE MTN CAKE ⛰ 🍰 Layers of chocolate olive oil cake with chocolate ganache, caramel sauce, and crushed pretzels surrounded by luscious buttercream. I’ve been wanting to make this design for a long time but never knew how to bring it to life until now. I think it’s my new favorite. 💓 Happy 50th to my amazing mother-in-law @juliashayekuhl!

Ramps, trout lilies, spring beauties, cutleaf toothwort, squirrel corn, dutchman's breeches, and - bonus! - a pair of bald eagles fishing. Yesterday was a glorious day for a spring walk in the woods. I adore spring in the Appalachians.

Our Easter-on-bikes tradition continues, this time in our home mountains. The forest floor was electric after days of rain; Fiddleheads unfurling everywhere and tiny flowers bursting through wet dirt. We feel rejuvenated, too. There’s nothing quite like springtime in the Appalachians. . . . #thisisourchurch #thenanvan #828isgreat #appalachians #ridebikesbehappy #springtime

In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection 🙌 1 Peter Happy Easter to all from the mountains, a wonderful weekend with wonderful friends and family. ❤ #appalachians

Pinhoti Trail. Weogufka, AL

My body wasn't listening. I sunk to the ground. My lungs felt like they were about to explode. I think you could hear my heavy breathing from the bottom of the mountain. I reached for my water bottle. There was not enough for the trip down the mountain so I decided to save it for later. My throat was soar. I felt like coughing but i did not feel pain. I knew my kyrgyz ancestors were hikers as well and hiking part was in my blood. Nomads used to walk or hike 1000s miles or km. to find right place to live and i guess i found my place on earth. #wintersolstice #greatsmokymountains #mtleconte #tennessee #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #northcarolina #appalachians #hiking #backpacker #rei1440project #wanderlust #wildernessculture #outdoor_project #getoutdoors #optoutside #instagramtennessee #tristaradventures #neverstopexploring #ig_nature #mountains #appalachia #theoutbound #campvibes #getoutstayout #fall #nationalparkgeek #landscape_lovers #artofvisuals #stayandwander #beautifuldestinations

Built in 1947, the Bluffs Lodge was one of only 3 hotels on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It closed in 2011, and the other 2 are still going strong. There are efforts to revitalize this area. Some are hopeful while others enjoy the solitude this area provides. There wasn’t a soul in sight on this foggy and cold morning at Doughton.

I can feel the comforting warmth in this pic. We hope y'all are having a good weekend...to all those working this Easter weekend, thank you.

Manifestation.

Alabama, Arkansas... and Mississippi! Spring Break in the Deep South was absolutely lovely. I’m so at home in the South, and I have no idea why! I can’t wait to go back someday. . . . . #south #alabama #mississippi #deepsouth #geology #appalachians #beach #island

Walked amongst Giants yesterday in Joyce Kilmer memorial Park 🏞🚲◻. This 3,800 acre track of land is home to a spectacular old growth forest. With it's own microclimate that produces heavy fog and moisture that helps grow these massive giants. Most of the time trees and plants move water against gravity from the roots to shoots. In foggy areas trees absorb the moisture in the branches as well. Resulting in less energy being used to move the water up and producing massive 🌲. This area is rich in Flora and fauna and is essentially the lungs of the Appalachia. We need to ensure that these areas are protected and cherished for our future generations ❤. . . . . #oldgrowthforest #joycekilmer #appalachians #rainforest #nationalparks #protectourtrees #gooutside #letsgooutside #explore #nature #northcarolina #beautiful #giants

Happy earth day! Another shot of one of my favorite views in the world, in Shenandoah National Park. It's a place where ancientness and constant renewal collide head on.

My most favorite early spring flowering trees - redbuds. Seeing these trees in their full splendor all over the state makes my heart go pitter patter. 😍

Good show Cumberland Valley! Minutes before an epic deluge. #flatrock #centralpa #appalachians #coloneldenningstatepark #hikengo

Week long camping trip success! Tennessee, North Carolina, and West Virginia with @forestbeings 😘 So nice to be in nature again. #southeastusa #camping #backpacking #appalachians #foraging #nature #cats #dork #ineedmoreofthis

Spring in Maryland is very pretty. These wild red bud trees remind me of my childhood. It is raining, but I was able to brighten up the pictures. I took plenty of allergy medication, but when it is raining my allergies don't seem to be so bad. #benadryl #ablazeofpetalglory #mylifeinappalachia #appalachianmountains #appalachiaproud #appalachians #appalachianamerican #redbudtree #redbud

Spring blooms from the Great Smoky Mountains. Reminiscing over a trip I made last year around this time. Listen with the sound on, there's almost constant water.

Footage from last years climb of Mount Le Conte in the Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee. One of my favorite hikes in the world!!

#flashbackfriday to when we took Ember to the mountains for the first time! We visited Boone Nc, for some gnarly hikes in the middle of a huge thunderstorm.(We were already deep in the hike when it started andddd don’t advise that situation). I miss the mountains and this chunky baby stage so much already. • • • • •#mountains #gooutside #boonenc #grandfathermountain #appalachians #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #babiesofinstagram #womenwhohike #mamasgirl #emberwren #hiketheeastcoast

The moon and sunset tonight! #godscreation

Traveling home thru the Blue Ridge Pkwy. Did you know that the mountains that form the #appalachians are the same range that go thru Scotland and parts of Europe? 250 million years ago the continental plates collided forming the Central Pangean Mountains. When Pangea broke up into mini continents the range shifted with their perspective continents today. The Appalachian trail extends from Georgia to Maine; internationally the trail continues on into Canada, Norway, Sweden and Scotland. No wonder my Ancestors felt at home in Great Smokey Mountains. #clandonaldsoutheast #nature

We spotted two salamanders and one Eastern Rat Snake. - #hiking #tennessee #smokymountains #mountains #appalachians #appalachianmountains #rnifilms

Whenever my head starts to hurt Before it goes from bad to feeling worst I turn off my phone I get down low I put my hands in the dirt I try to stop the world from moving so fast Try and get a grip on where I'm at To simplify this dizzy life And get my feet in the grass I'm going back to the Earth I'm going back to the Earth I'm going back to work I'm going back to the Earth Yes I'm going Back... The only explanation for a high rise Must be that everybody wants to get it high And Move on up to a deluxe apartment in the sky Well, The higher we go, the taller we grow old We lose sight of our land below You can have your place up in outer space Cause my home is where my food is grown I'm going back to the Earth I'm going back to the Earth I'm going back to work I'm going back to the Earth . . 🎶Jason Mraz - Back to the Earth . . . 🧗‍♀️ #tbt to last MDW

The Old Iron Bridge is one of my favorite places to go. I love swimming in the deep hole right below the rapids. I'm planning to go fishing here pretty soon. The boulders offer a nice place to sit and take in the sunshine. * * * * #hiking #swimming #river #fishing #troutfishing #mountain #mountainlife #explore #bridge #old #outdoors #appalachians #carolina #rapids #naturephotography #nature #nicescenery #fun #picoftheday

Heading up to the Mountains this weekend to visit the family for Easter and my Mum’s birthday and I couldn’t be more excited!

<Link Below> This is a compressed video my sister made of when my brother was body slammed face first into the road for nothing. He had to go to the hospital for a large gash on his temple and had memory/vision issues for a while and has a degree of ptsd and paranoia because of it, and we have evidence of the police department and chief trying to ignore or mislead us on filing a complaint and other issues for months. Also they didn't pay for our $60 of groceries that were ruined and we're low income. . https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yzlpnwQ0Pog #police #policebrutality #excessiveforce #policeexcessiveforce #civilrights #civilrightsviolations #cops #crookedcops #westvirginia #wv #appalachians #countryroads #justiceforjake
