climb every mountain

We have not wings
we cannot soar;
but, we have feet
to scale and climb,
by slow degrees,
by more and more,
the cloudy summits
of our time.

--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) American Poet. 

These were taken last week at an overlook just below the summit of Jane's Bald in the Roan Highlands. In the foreground of the photo at the top is Round Bald and beyond that is Roan Mountain. The photo of 'Blue' makes it look as if he's in a pretty perilous place, but he's actually standing on the rock you see in the foreground of the top photo. Funny what a difference a little change in perspective can make in a photo. :)
