I know I've been a little bit scarce over here lately mostly because I'm really excited about Instagram. Who's using instagram. Drop your link in the comments so I can check out your page.

~super high water volume edition~
One of the most iconic falls and one that absolutely warrants a visit in Western North Carolina is Looking Glass Falls right on Hwy 276. The color is always spectacular on that stretch of Hwy and with the abundant rain we had all Saturday we figured why not see how crazy the water flow would be at Looking Glass. Standing on the lower landing of the stairs was an experience.
The force of the spray was really intense and we had to backtrack about 100 yards before we could safely consider using the camera.
Anyway here is one I really liked showing the full force of the water. It was a great way to close out our Saturday before dinner.
Love some Western North Carolina this time of year.
Where are you getting it this fall?
There are only a few short weeks left until Sept 23rd, the first day of fall. At times like this, I find my mind drifting off to cooler memories and cooler locations like this one from back in February where the lowest actual temperature we experienced was around -14. With the sun out it was actually rather pleasant, but once it was gone and the wind picked up we sure felt it.
The lake was frozen solid and of course we had to at least give it a little test to see if we could fall in. :) Luckily no one did.
I'm currently planning for two backpacking trips into the mountains to cool off a bit, one just me and the boys. Not sure how long we will last, or how far we will hike, but I know it's going to be fantastic.
Hope you are staying cool!
Appalachian Trail, Jane's Bald

We just concluded our Astrophotography Workshop in Boone North Carolina and what a blast it was. Despite turbulent weather we got some incredible light and good clearing in all our locations to work on our night skills.
Here you can see our group traversing the ridge along Janes Bald with head lamps blazing. Storms rolled through the area all evening and different areas of the trail were drenched in rain. We skirted back and forth along the ridgeline avoiding the rain, cathing the best light and settling down in spots when the clouds cleared to capture those starry skies.
