Rhododendron Sunrise

I worked hard for this shot…  I got up at 4:00 a.m. and drove about an hour to the trail head.  I then hiked a mile before sunrise to get to my desired location, which was “Jane Bald” in the Roan Highlands.  This 5826′ grass-covered peak gave me wonderful views to the east with Rhododenrons in bloom everywhere.

Preserved Stream

This is a photo a small waterfall on the Rocky Fork stream in Unicoi County, Tennessee.  The recent purchase of the surrounding land (also known as “Rocky Fork”) made it a fully protected and preserved area.  Before this purchase occurred, it was the largest unprotected area in the Appalachian Mountains.  This purchase is a great achievement for land, wildlife, and stream preservation in the Appalachian Mountains.  If you get a chance, go check out this beautful area known as Rocky Fork.
