The mountains have been on my mind lately. I miss the hikes, the views, and my children complaining about dragging them into the great outdoors. This is an older photo I took a couple of years ago from atop Clingman’s Dome, the highest point in the US this side of the Mississippi river.
I had to get away today after suffering through black Friday Shopping. We went to a store with what had to be over a hundred crazy high school girls. Myself and the other fathers kept to the side walls for our own safety. Once I got home, I grabbed by camera back and headed to the Perkiomin Trail near my house. I wound up going off trail and wandered the wetland around Perkionmen Creek. I saw this tree sticking out the creek. 31 sec, f/11, ISO 100, 16mm.
The latest weather report is calling for about 4 inches of snow! I’ve learned to embrace snow the last couple of years, living in the Northeast, what choice do you have? Today’s photo is from Valley Forge last winter.
