The beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Sometimes they leave me speechless. I got this shot near MP 364 on the BRP.

The Jonas RidgeI traveled down to the Linville Gorge in North Carolina weekend before last, specifically aiming to spend some time on the Jonas Ridge on the east side of the gorge. I've been to the summit of Hawksbill before, but wanted to explore the Shortoff Mt. trail and Table Rock to check out the views this time down. The drive to the Table Rock picnic area takes about 30-40 minutes on a narrow gravel forest road, but the destination is well worth the time and effort made getting there. I arrived about an hour before sunset and hurried up the Shortoff Mt. trail just in time to catch a gorgeous sunset. There was a fire on this side of the gorge a couple years ago and there are still a few charred tree trunks to be found scattered about. For the most part the area seems to have recovered rather well though. Please feel free to share and if you wish, give my page a "Like" as well. Thanks for looking!

Reflection in a Pool
The Astro TouristThe southern core of the Milky Way above the highlands of West Virginia from an overlook of the small communities of Woodrow and West Union, a lone star gazer rests on the hood of a car, glancing up at the night sky.Did you know West Virginia is one of the few places on the East Coast where you can get far enough away from light pollution to see the Milky Way from horizon to horizon? The Highlands Scenic Highway near Marlington, WV provides an excellent opportunity to do exactly that on a moonless night, right from the road. We should go out of our way from time to time to appreciate this resource we have right over our head before its too late!
