It is finally time to share my pictures from my recent travels. With these photos I really wanted to show what it is that makes these parks so special to me. When I hike, it isn't just walking around. Every step brings something new to light, even if I have walked the path a million times.
This trip took me through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. I visited Talladega National Forest, The Great Smokey Mountains National Park, and Craggy Garden on The Blue Ridge Parkway. There were a couple other places I saw, but these were the best and the ones I took pictures of. Enjoy.
The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars. ― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
