Welcome to my Blog! Using a new web host and am able to get a blog back in action! Please have some patients with this site it will take me a time to get used to all of the features and how to tweet them. Looking forward to sharing photo tips and reports from some of my travels. For most of you that don't know me I am a photographer/hiker and backpacker. Love to backpack and take photo's that are off of the beaten path of everyday life. I do most of my backpacking in North Carolina my home base state and love the Smokies Mtns. On my bucket list of things to do is visit all of the State parks in NC and hike the AT Appalachian Trail that goes through NC. Love waterfalls and big overlooks of the mountains. I am looking forward to taking you with me on my journeys photographing my adventures with tips and tricks thrown in for good measure!
The photograph is of me on top of Grandfather Mtn with the wreckage of a small plane that crashed in 1978. While hiking on the trail later in the day I found a guy that didn't quite look like a hiker and I started up a conversation with him and come to find out that he was the son of the pilot that was flying the plane that crashed. I found out that his father had perished in the crash so I didn't ask too many more questions. He was showing some of his relatives the wreckage but had marked the location on his map wrong. I pointed him in the right direction and hopefully he found his fathers plane. Small World Huh!
