We made itttt (Every video I have you can hear Walter panting ) Hay Rock/ Carvins Cove is an excellent #hike ! You pretty much go straight to the #ridgeline (after an enchanted #forest ) and get to enjoy #views all along the way! Ben and I were able to pick a rock to eat lunch on while having it all to ourselves, which was dope I will also be investing in a #stabilizer so feel free to drop your favorite brand below

I have the happiest memories of spending time with my grandmas when I was growing up. Theyre both gone now, and I especially miss that I cant introduce them to my children. But, Im so thankful that they get to build a relationship with their own grandmas like I did. I never want to take this sweet connection for granted. ... Love, love this capture when my mom was visiting two weeks ago. ... #buildingfamilyconnections #grandbabiesofinstagram #grandmalove #daughtersweekend #blueridgemountainlife

This pretty little female Goldfinch is a frequent visitor to our feeder here in our mountain paradise. I love the little sounds she makes when she communicates with her friends and her mate. In this photo she looks at me inquisitively probably wondering why I'm so interested in her. I wish I could tell her that she and her friends make me smile. #birdsofafeather #natureisbeautiful #gsmnp #visitmysmokies #865life #smokymtnliving #brysoncity #liveoutdoors #visitncsmokies #peacefulsmokies #tnmountains #instagramtennessee #optoutside #friendsofthesmokies #gsmassoc #blueridgeoutdoors #natgeotravel #blueridgemoments #naturaltennessee #awalkinthewoods #blueridgemountainlife #tristaradventures #peacefulplaces #greatsmokynps #gatlinburgtnguide

Beautiful Saturday on the mountain and the garden grows. Picked a zucchini this morning and lots of baby summer squash about to be ready. Made a variety of black raspberry jams today too with the help of my fab sous chefs @billfrack and @swnelly - plain and flavored with either mint or basil. Summer treats, gonna be good! #gardenlover #summerproduce #straightfromthegarden #mountainliving #blueridgemountainlife #summertime #roaringgap2019 #vacationhomelife #lainteriordesigner #kmnelsondesign

**You dont have to apologize for having feelings ** Guys, the past couple days have been a little tough. I have gone on about my days acting like everything is fine until it all hit me last night. I cried for hours. And then I thought about the #promise I made to myself, and that was to stop acting like everything is ok. I am allowed to act upset. I dont have to pretend everything is perfect all the time. I DONT HAVE TO APOLOGIZE FOR HAVING FEELINGS! We all go through this! Constantly I feel as if we all bottle things up just to make it easier for everyone else instead of trying to #takecare of ourselves. So today was a great reminder that its ok to #showyouremotions and go through all the #feelings that come with them

#鳴 @wildwoodblessing. After watching the sunrise on the parkway this morning and heading north, Nicole C. Mullens version of Redeemer started playing and as I rounded the curve these beautiful rays appeared. Talk about having a moment!(By the way, if you havent heard her sing Redeemer, pull it up and give it a listen) + + + + + + #godscreation #landscapephotography #adventures #alltrails #ncoutdoors #naturalnorthcarolina #fog #exploreboone #booneview #moodygrams #blueridgemountains #visitnc #blueridgemoments #ncoutdoorculture #blueridgemountainlife #sunrays #naturenc #appalachianmountains #scenicnc #nature #ashevilletrails #naturephotography #outdoors #hiking #celebratingnc #southernstatescollective #explore #trails #teamcanon

I remember taking vacations here when I was a kid. As soon as we got in the mountains my face would be stuck against the window in awe. Closing in on 8 years since Ive called this place home now. Funny how the world works!!

Tranquil Moments | Asheville, NC

As I walked the fields along Hyatt Lane last night around 7:30, the heat of the southern summer sun could still be felt on every inch of my skin... But after 14 days of not being able to step into my Smokies, even the humidity and the random face bumps by the gnats were a welcome feeling. A few people stopped in their vehicles to warn me of a giant black bear and 2 cubs that were just down from me... Yes, I was well aware of their presence as Im sure they were of mine... But like so many times before there was a silent understanding between the Momma and I... I had no intention of interrupting her peaceful evening and she had no desire to interrupt mine. I was there for the softness of the sunset and the whimsical blooms of the Passion flowers. I was just about to make my way over to a batch of Tennessees state wildflower when this edge of the fence caught my attention. I stopped and wiped the wet from sweat bangs from my eyes... As I blinked, I had a quick vision of what life was like long ago in Cades Cove. I saw the worn hands of an Appalachian man, working hard in the same southern summer sun - with sunburnt shoulders and an aching back as he dug and dug... Placing fence post after fence post into the earth. A man that knew the hills of the Smokies like I never will, a man that is long gone today but whose spirit I can still feel... A man that will always be the face of these Appalachian hills.

Enjoyed spending a rainy afternoon watching the elk graze. Amazing creatures, most def had the urge to try and ride one, but I didnt give into peer pressure.

I love sunsets and when paired with Queen Annes Lace, I drift off into one of my earliest childhood memories of walking through a meadow with my Grandpa. While holding his hand, he told me the story of how the flower got its name from Queen Anne pricking her finger while tatting lace and a single drop of blood landed in the middle of her lacework. I still look for that deep reddish black dot every time I see Queen Annes Lace and cherish the memory. #godsartwork #godscreation #sunset_sunrise_beautiful #sunset #clouds #onlyinnorthcarolina #blueridgemountainlife #blueridgemoments #naturenc #mountains #romanticasheville #discover #exploreboone #ncoutdoors #northcarolina #blueridgemountains #mountains #visitnc #landscapephotography #sunrise #scenicnc #celebratingnc #naturepics #northcarolina #mountains #itsbetterherethanthere #nature #naturephotography #trails #wncmountains #sunrise

A Smokies Sunday Church bells are ringing, the choirs singing. Singing the hymns that their grandmothers would hum to add joy to the hard work that had to be done... The children of the hills - laughin, skippin and pickin wildflowers along the way to the churches where their fathers were saved. A sunny summer Sunday - often filled with rain showers and rainbows... How many Sundays do they have left? Only God knows. A day for rest, yes, but the fields still need to be mowed... Herders are heading back from Spence Field to join in down by the creek to celebrate the salvation that their spirits seek. Their sins washed clean by ice cold Smokies water... With promises to spend eternity with those that are already resting in peace. Loved ones that are gone but never forgotten. A hard life, a simple life - but a life where blessings are counted daily, prayers are said every night at their bedside and even when everything goes wrong, all is still right. All is right, on a Smokies Sunday.

After watching a beautiful sunrise at Beacon Heights, I headed south on the Blue Ridge Parkway to Crabtree Falls. With some things weighing heavily on my heart, I appreciated being alone with God, talking to Him, without distractions except for His magnificent creation which reminded me that He created every bit of this beauty from nothing and my concerns are definitely not to big for Him. + + + + + + + #godscreation #landscapephotography #adventures #alltrails #ncoutdoors #naturalnorthcarolina #fog #exploreboone #booneview #moodygrams #blueridgemountains #visitnc #blueridgemoments #ncoutdoorculture #blueridgemountainlife #waterfall #naturenc #appalachianmountains #scenicnc #nature #ashevilletrails #naturephotography #outdoors #hiking #celebratingnc #southernstatescollective #explore #trails #teamcanon
