The first time I came out here to shoot this waterfall my camera battery was dead and it started pouring down rain. I accepted defeat and vowed to return another day. Just goes to show, when the timing in life is right, the things you want will be there waiting for you. Better than ever. ................................................................ #pisgahnationalforest #pisgah #avltoday #ncoutdoors #blueridgemoments #blueridgeoutdoors #discover_carolinas #carolinacollectives #getoutsideandplay #eastcoastcreatives #exploretocreate #naturephoto

🍁Glassmine FALLs 🍁

Did you know The South Fork Catawba River is west of the Catawba River & merges with the Catawba River at Lake Wylie near the South Carolina Border? The river offers miles of natural landscapes , with great fishing and paddling opportunities. Our Town is lucky enough to have over 3 miles of River frontage running through the heart of it! 🌿🌅

Just before the leaves turn....we love these blue ridge mountains! #fall #blueridgemountains #optoutside

A change... part 2 🍂 #goexplore #yellow

A black and white “film” edit of Crabtree Falls 💙 these are definitely some of the most photogenic falls around!

Have you ever been to a gorge in the Appalachians? Linville Gorge outside of Asheville has been described as "The Grand Canyon of North Carolina", a truly spectacular place. With the varying elevations within a short geographic distance, these areas are prime for biodiversity. - - - - #asheville #ashevilletrails #ncmountains #visitnc #nature #nature_lovers #nature_good #naturalnorthcarolina #ncoutdoors #ncoutdoor_inc #discover_earth #earthpix #scenicnc #filmmaking #documentary #mountains #hotspot #biodiversity

Southern Appalachia is home to mountain balds, unique features that are somewhat of a wonder. Some of them have been hypthesized to of been cleared for grazing animals while others were naturally destroyed by wildfires. Whatever the case, these beautiful balds are extremely diverse, hosting a wide array of endemic species. - - - - #appalachia #blueridgemountains #blueridgemoments #film #filmmaking #documentary #mountains #ncoutdoors #ncoutdoor_inc #naturalnorthcarolina #asheville #ashevilletrails #ncmountains #visitnc #nature #hotspot #biodiversity #wild

The color has exploded over the last 4 days and with the rain and fog it has been absolutely beautiful in the High Country. I found this little spot along the Watauga River where the warmth of the trees worked with the flow of the river emptying into a nice clear pool... #blueridgemountians #appalachianstate #appalachianmountians #celebratingnc #ourstatemag #booneview #celebratingnc #grandfathermtn #itsbetterherethanthere #exploreboone #usinterior #natgeo #explore_northcarolina #wxplorenorthcarolina #visitnc #nc #wnc #exolorenc #ncoutdoors #fujifilm #blueridgemountainlife #mediumformatmag #blueridgeparkway #cmlmagazine #greatest_northcarolina #blueridgemoments #nchome #blowingrocknc #roamoutdoors #fujifilmgfx

Men who inspire me. Age, I have learned, is irrelevant.

Beautiful start to the fall colors at Linn Cove Viaduct. The peak is near -- get out there this week! #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemountains #blueridgemoments #linncoveviaduct #ncoutdoors #optoutside #828isgreat #ourstate #visitnc #landscapephotography #mountainphotography #canonusa #rainbow

Another from yesterday

It's fall and close to Halloween so what better way to pass time than throwing darts at pumpkins. What I love about the Atlatl is how challenging it is for me. It takes an immense amount of patience and percision but it has been my new addiction. . . . . . #bushcraft #bushcraftusa #survival #survivalist #woodswoman #outdoor #outdoors #nature #selfreliance #outdoorswoman #naturephotography #outdoorphotography #survivaltraining #wilderness #wildernesskills #wildernesslife #survivalskills #survivalschool #rewild #outdoorskills #primitiveskills #outdoorslife #wildernessculture #bushcrafters #ncoutdoors #primitivetechnology #atlatl #girlpower #womeninthewild

Prepping for a morning shoot sitting on the rim of the “Canyon of the East” #linvillegorge and hanging with the best crew around @roam_outdoors_ .

No area is more diverse in terms of salamander species than Southern Appalachia. Spanning from northern Georgia to Southern Virginia, this is where salamander diversity reaches its peak. - - - - #salamander #diversity #biodiversity #nature #nature_lovers #nature_good #naturalnorthcarolina #ncoutdoors #earthpix #discover_earth #nakedplanet #film #filmmaking #documentary

Temperate forest diversity in Southern Appalachia is rivaled only by places in Central China. From oaks to maples to spruce, this region is truly special. - - - - #hotspot #documentary #film #tree #diversity #biodiversity #nature #nature_lovers #nature_good #naturalnorthcarolina #ncoutdoors #ncoutdoor_inc #filmmaking #blueridgemountains #blueridgemoments

Now that I put up my first bird feeder Im seeing these chickadees everywhere! . . #chickadee #chickadees #ncbirds #birdphotography #northcarolinabirds #ncoutdoors #naturenc #birdwatching #birdsofinstagram

I MET A FREEDOM CHICKEN TODAY, Y’ALL. My first ever #baldeagle sighting in the wild, and I had my camera with me!! I was kayaking near Lookout Shoals Dam. I saw a large, dark bird circling over the dam. I initially thought it was a turkey vulture because of the distance and size. It crossed the lake at a great height, but then swooped down and dove at the water. I figured then it must have been a big osprey. I noted the tree it flew to and made a beeline across the main channel toward it, hoping to possibly catch a shot of the “osprey” eating. When I first took a look through my zoom lens and saw that it was an adult bald eagle, I was practically shaking. I was still a few hundred feet away when it flew off again, but I snapped a few shots. So glad I decided to go paddling this afternoon! #haliaeetusleucocephalus #baldeagles #freedomchicken #baldeaglesighting #raptorsofinstagram #raptorsofnc #ncwildlife #wildlifeencounters #nikond3500 #nikond3500photography #nikonnature #nikonwildlife #nikkor70_300 #ncoutdoors #paddlenc #lookoutshoalslake #lookoutshoalsdam #catawbariver #nc100miles

During the fall months when the sun sets it turns #cowrock the most beautiful shade of orangey pink.

2019 Carolina BalloonFest 🍂🎈

Nearly surrounded by Lake Lure, Morse Park is a tranquil getaway just minutes from town. This fall weather is perfect for a @carolinamooncoffee and a stroll.

Tonight's sunset #sunsets #ncoutdoors #withtheloveofmylife #harrisburgnc

A fire sky from this past Friday in the mountains, for anyone who seen my stories this weekend this was captured during that crazy sunset i shared there. Easily the best sunset I’ve ever witnessed in the NC mountains. . . . . Blue Ridge Parkway

A private tour of the Bluff Mountain Preserve in September with peakbagging friends. Perfect weather for hiking one of the most unique peaks of the Amphibolite Mountains. Pictures and videos in order from Bluff Mountain, Perkin's Rock, The Bluff, and a rare southern Appalachian fen. - #hiking #optoutside #northcarolina #wnc #appalachianmountains #amphibolitemountains #bluffmountain #thenatureconservancy #tnc #outdoors #ncoutdoors #hikingupward #peakbagging #mountains #blueridgemountains #view #scenery #myblueridge #blueridgemoments #blueridgeoutdoors

Though we had some rough weather, the colors changing at elevation right now make hiking great, no matter the day! . . . #hikemoreworryless #optoutside #hikenc #pisgahnationalforest #shiningrockwilderness #artloeb #hike #guidelife #explore #ncoutdoors #adventureasheville #brevardnc

"I Have You" And then I looked at you and knew we would make it through When the day is choked and its life turns blue When the night can't sleep and even the sun won't keep I'll lay next to you I'll close my eyes and feel you breathe And I know some days we'll grieve but I will always look at you and trust that we'll make it through Because my love The Lord holds us in His hands and in the midst of His grasp I have you [May 5, 2019] #poetsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #relationships #eynainfilms #ncoutdoors #poems #writersofinstagram #instawriter #blueridgeparkway #mountains #beardedbabe #husband #portraitmode

Heads were in the clouds Saturday on the blue ridge parkway as the leaves began to turn in Western Carolina! Fall is officially here, and with the change of season, I am looking forward to embracing any changes the road of life may bring! #fall #fog #road #leaves #westernnorthcarolina #onlyinnorthcarolina #northcarolina #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #explorenc #wnc #naturenc #outdoors #outdoorphotography #visitnc #explorecarolina #landscapephotography #landscape #naturephotography #nature #discover_carolinas #moodygrams #ncoutdoors #fujifilm #justgoshoot #landscapelovers #theoutbound #change #instagood #ncoutdoor_inc

Another view of the latrine from yesterday's post. A few years ago one camper who had spent time here in the 1940s remarked that it still looks "basically the same," but that back then the trees were shorter and the grass "well trampled" by the feet of hundreds of children.⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ #raleigh #durham #downtownraleigh #nc #raleighnc #northcarolina #welovenc #visitnc #williamumsteadstatepark #williambumsteadstatepark #ncstateparks #naturenc #nccn2019 #ncoutdoors #visitraleigh #outaboutnc #exploreraleigh #ig_northcarolina #ncphotography #landscapephotography #naturelover #landscapelovers #landscape_captures #landscapes #welovenc #visitnc #ncoutdoor_inc #instanature #igersnorthcarolina #igersnc⁣

I was completely ready to take a full week off of this space. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Like, it was feeling really good. ⠀ ⠀ Because, to be honest, it was tiring me out and I had lost a lot of the joy I used to find in it. Then my IG friend Kate over at @rallistribe wrote something so thought-provoking (as she is prone to do quite often) and it got my gears turning this morning. We go through stints when our days are pretty mundane and I struggle to find anything interesting to share. But reading her post was a much-needed reminder as to what I gain from being a part of the community here and why it's so amazing. It's usually in those "blah" moments that I find something that someone else has written or a photo they've taken and it relights my creative spark when it's burning out. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We're about to embark on a couple of months that I know are going to really test us. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ When life isn't nearly so (post-travel level) adventurous and we don't have trips/plans every other weekend. When I'm going to be recycling a ton of old pictures from exciting places, you know, just to torture myself a little. 😂 While my job tends to slow down this time of year, Stephen's speeds up and that means overtime and weekends. A lot of time working when everyone else is off in holiday-mode. He's hardcore and never complains, but I know this year is going to be tougher coming off of what we were doing this time last year. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ So thankful we were able to spend this past long weekend with great friends who we missed dearly while we traveled. Had so much good food that all my pants fit tighter this week. And laughed so hard that my face hurt every morning. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

Cherohala Skyway .. I say this weekend will be peak. #828isgreat #smokiemountains #ncoutdoors

Dreary day here in NC, so here is a little pop of red to brighten your day. Haven’t seen this sweet boy in a while. He showed up last winter and stayed until some time in March. I often think of “one eye” as I called him and wonder what may have happened to him. I am hoping he is ok and will return to my yard and my feeders this winter. I always wondered what had happened to his eye but I guess I’ll never know. Swipe to see how he got his name.
