Can’t wait to go back to the mountains again this weekend! Yes, I know it’s going to be packed because of Memorial Day weekend, but I have a plan....(my infamous phrase that usually means adventure from hell😂) and yes, I can see @exploring_emily and @_caseyr rolling their eyes.... Can this solo hiker survive in the Smokies on one of the busiest weekends???😂😂😂 Stay tuned... . . . . #raw_world #raw_allnature #raw_alltrees #appalacian_explorers #onlythebestcaptures #hey_ihadtosnapthat #photohitchhiker #ipulledoverforthis #femaleshutterbugs #onlythebestcaptures #ig_naturemagic #igbest_shots #ig_nature_naturally #nb_nature_brilliance #greatsmokymountains #ig_captured #national_park_photography #hikingadventures #usa_naturehippys #naturehippys_ #naturehippys_500 #raw_usa #raw_hikes #raw_seasons #backroad_visions #hdr_country #bns_landscape #instagramtennessee #1killershot #friendsofthesmokies

As most of you know we drove back thru Canada to visit family. This is why we didn’t fly.

Have you ever explored Cades Cove on foot? The 11 mile loop road is now closed to vehicles every Wednesday and Saturday until 10a.m! It’s the perfect opportunity to soak up the beauty and peacefulness of the cove! 🌄

Don’t give me a cookie cutter dwelling or diamonds and Louboutins.. I don’t need a flashy car, fancy dinners in the city or even trips afar.. Instead... Give me a Sunrise in the mountains, southern Appalachian waterfalls and not golden fountains.. Your hand in church on Sundays with the promise to love each other without “somedays”... Give me nights under the stars and butterflies in my heart.. Wildflowers in my grandmother’s mason jar and windows down, music up simple Sunday drives in the car.. Rainy days and coffee cups.. Give me goodmorning wake up calls to be sure that I’m up.. The safety of your arms, tingles with your finger tips and lazy mornings complete with Lucky Charms and last minute exploring trips.. Give me the priceless gems of life.. Love, laughs, trust and faith.. But, no rush darling.. Because a love like that is worth the wait. 💞 (*Prints available in my Etsy Shop.)

Spent some time tonight going back through a couple of #sunrise outings last year to find a monochromatic panoramic of some mountain layers for our interior designer at work. In the process, I found this one of #thedomecombtree at #clingmansdome from last June. I really should look back through my archives more often. · · · · · #865life #instagramtennessee #postcardworthy #gsmnp #smokymountains #greatsmokymountains #findyourpark #getoutside #tristaradventures #friendsofthesmokies #onlyintennessee #madeintn #homesweettn #backroadbum #YourTN #nickdealphotography

My little travel buddies are ready for our next adventure ☺️ these two love going on rides more than any other set of puppers I’ve ever known. My Rottweiler will even try and ride with my dad on the tractor when he feeds the horses! Do you travel with dogs? If so what breeds do you have ☺️

:: Happy Monday friends! I took this picture and it immediately made me want Autumn to hurry up and get here! It’s not even Summer yet and I’m already over the heat and allergies! Which season is your favorite? Fall all the way for me! 🧡🍂::

Rapids, Rocks and Rhododendrons, the Smokies to a T!!! Starting to work on some color images from the Smokies. Shot in Tremont in a pretty good rain, using my umbrella rig of course...blend of four images, mainly to play up the water flow, which was excellent. Best light to shoot in by far, when it’s raining! • • #landscapephotography #landscape #water #rapids #naturephotography #nature #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokies #gsmnp #longexpo #friendsofthesmokies #longexposure #longexposures #longexposure_shots #longexposure_world #longexposurephotography #ig_longexposure #reallyrightstuff
