Luke's Birthday Outing

Luke turned four yesterday. He is on the right in this picture. I had them out in the woods and he perched on this rock and smiled. I started shooting pictures. Sam climbed on and this was the result. Sam will be six in September. Sign in to see full entry.

Hidden Sanctuary

The sound of flowing water. The gentle breeze that courses through the river bottom. The magic of finding a waterfall in a remote place. If heaven be a place other than where I am, then how will I know when I find it? Sign in to see full entry.

Venus' Looking Glass

It stood proudly in the middle of the path, undaunted by those who passed by. To the onlooker, the evolution of the flowers was symbolic.

Pretty as a Postcard

I'm surprised how well some pictures turn out. I took this one yesterday while we were out walking in Kibler Valley. To me, this is what I think about when the term "Appalachia" comes to mind. Sign in to see full entry.

A Truly Magical Place

A lone granite sign welcomes the weary traveler to a place barely touched by time, but carved out of solid rock by a wending river over thousands of years.
