Paul VanceHow can anyone see the mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina and not believe in God? My ancestry called Grandfather's Mountain Home..... I believe my Scots-Irish Family made it to South Carolina and just kept traveling....when they got to Grandfather's Mountain...they stopped and looked at the beautiful mountains and the lush meadows and said...We are home...this will do!

Jared SmithI'm currently stationed in Hawaii, which most people would kill to even visit. It has it's moments, but I promise every one it's got nothing on the Appalachian mountains. I can't wait to come home to this.

The opening act at one pm was the Rockabillies and they are aptly named! The Orchard was rocking for the first hour and a half!

My Favorite Time of Day I've always been a morning person, early to rise and enjoy the world around me come to life. I like the beach, but I love the mountains. The last hour of darkness, as it fades to light you can observe many critters, not as cautious as they are in the bright light of day. The cool, crisp morning air of an early spring day, a thin veil of moisture lifting as the earth warms, all add to the enjoyment to the start of another wonderful day. Here sunlight skims the ridges while leaving the down slope in dim shadows, all part of our one constant: change... Share it if you like it, become a fan if you’re not… all comments are very much appreciated. f /11 – 1/8 sec. – ISO 500 16-35mm @ 28mm More images at; www.facebook.com/imagesbydan
