winter beauty

The mountains are calling and I must go.
--John Muir (1838 - 1914)

On one hand, it was absolutely exhilarating on Roan Mountain yesterday -- on the other, it was downright miserable. The bitter winds cut right through. Wish I had a ski mask! The deep snow drifts made our hike that much more of a challenge. But it was all worth it to see the Roan encased in winter beneath the beautiful blue skies.


  1. Its nice to know I wasn't the only one up there that day! Nice images.
