I love riding through the mountains. The twists & turns of this stretch are all part of the Tail of the Dragon which motorcyclists love to ride. The leaves are barely starting to change and will be in full color in a few weeks. Water is also a favorite of mine to photograph & be around. There is such a peacefulness that I feel even when the waters are crashing violently against the stones usually in the spring as the ice melts and rivers swell. The waters were mostly calm at this time, no storms were affecting the flows and the water levels seemed low with plenty of rocks dry and easier to walk on.
I also have a freakish interest in moss and weird looking trees. One day I will make a landscape quilt – I keep telling myself this anyway 🙂
