wandering wonders

Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.
--Saint Augustine (354-430) philosopher and theologian

With all our recent rains, now is a great time to visit area waterfalls (TN / NC). A friend visited Sill Branch Falls in Unicoi Co. yesterday and said it looked amazing.

Also, I just discovered a wonderful resource for WNC - the Asheville Citizens-Times has an excellent Outdoors section, check it out here.
