The world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idealized past. 
--Robertson Davies (1913-1995) author. 

Here's a shot I took today of Grandfather Mountain - from my favorite angle, under my favorite tree in MacRae Meadows. I decided to give it the texturized treatment where I added an old film look just for something different.  Back in December of 2009, the trees in the picnic/camping area of MacRae Meadows were severely damaged by an ice storm, click here to see the destruction.  They've done a wonderful job cleaning up and sprucing up the area which is the site of the annual Highland Games each July.
