Blue Ridge Mountains @ Fannin County

13 Mar

Part two of our hiking adventure on the Blue Ridge Mountains, see part one here.

This area made Luis stop and take a look around.

He was loving the green tress, the moss on the rocks, the cool air, and the blue sky.

I think it’s going to be my goal to find a crazy tree every time we go hiking, I just love’em.

After a few minutes of hiking the Stanley Gap Trail we found out that it was a mountain biking trail so, we turned back into the Benton MacKaye trail and started heading down.  Those mountain bikers were seriously fast and made my heart jump as they came cruising down the mountain right beside us.

The sight of the river made me want to grab a kayak and jump in… as soon as it gets a little warmer =)

Now it’s time to start cleaning the house and figure out my menu for the coming week.


Hiking @ Blue Ridge Mountains

12 Mar

This morning was the first time in a long time that I have woken up around 7 in the morning on a Saturday.

I guess mother nature wanted me to take advantage of the great weather and go hiking.

100 miles later we found ourselves at the Blue Ridge Mountains in Fannin County.

We followed the stream along the Aska Road until we reached our adventure for the day…. Fall Branch Falls, Benton MacKaye, and  Stanley Gap Trail.

The photo above and below is me playing around with my camera, adjusting shutter speed to try and capture the movement of the water.

I really love to take pictures of moss.  Moss on rocks, moss on trees, moss is beautiful.

Lunch on top of Springer Mountain.

Until tomorrow for part two of our hiking trip on the Blue Ridge Mountains.
