Appalachia North Carolina

Summer plans were affected by the Covid19 Virus. I had planned a nice S curve following the Blue Ridge Parkway that turned into more of a zig-zag. Campgrounds that I reserved never opened and the ones that did were packed. Kids and bears were abundant.

I began at Carter Lake, Georgia
Sunlight after the rain.
Color in the forest.
Much rain fed the many waterfalls.
A waterfall starts with a “seep” where the water oozes out of the earth.
The seeps turn into puddles.
Rhododendron blooms filled the forests.
Hiking along a river.
Smoky Mountains.
Ocean of clouds
Clouds rise into the sky.
As summer came to a close, I headed east toward the sea with a stop for a kayak at Badin Lake, NC.
