Zoder’s Inn, in the Smoky Mountains – Gatlingburg Tennessee

I took this photo about 4 years ago now and ever since, it’s been my most popular pin on Pinterest, getting over 500 repins, especially lately for some reason. What I’ve never bothered to do it make it available for people to own! It belonged to my selection of photos intended for blogging our travels, and this one specifically about our experience in Gatlingburg – a town much more popular than I imagined.

So, I’ve decided to list it – available for purchase as a print, large or small, framed or on canvas, you name it I can do it. This hotel is a place that has given a lot of people great memories of their time in the Smoky Mountains, and that’s important. The creek is called Roaring Fork Creek and is typical of creeks in the area, rapidly flowing across rocks from the mountains surrounding the this funny little town.

Check it out on Etsy if you want to get yourself a print!

Foggy and Moody Pics From the Sierra Nevada Mountains

We’ve been in California far longer than I expected, over 2 months now, and although I was wary at first, I’m now a pretty big fan of this giant state.

The nature around here is unmistakably unique to California. In the Sierra Nevada Mountains there are trees as big and tall as two semi trucks parked end to end (or bigger), and in the spring, low lying clouds and foggy scenery. I can’t help but be excited about it every time we go exploring. I would choose a rainy day in northern California to a sunny day on the beach any day.

After we visited Yosemite and Big Trees State Park in the Sierras, we traveled to the coast where we saw the redwood forests, hung out on rocky beaches and strolled ferny paths. These forests are magical, and flora so thick and ancient.

Here are some of my favorite shots from these places.

A Tree Worth a 9 Mile Hike

Four years ago in the fall we visited Savannah, camping in Skidaway Island State Park. While there we hiked some of the trails and found an amazing tree however at the time I had the wrong camera, no film, the lighting was all wrong…whatever the reason I didn’t get a good shot of it. Last week we were finally there again and hiked the entire 6 miles of trails trying to find the tree again (and just having a gorgeous, bug free hike), when we found it, yet again my cameras were an issue and I couldn’t get a photo. It certainly wasn’t a waste of 6 miles of hiking and at least now I knew which trail it was on. I went back the next day and hiked back to the tree, this time only 3 miles round trip since I now knew where it was, and I got my shots, film and digital.

It’s probably one of my favorite trees in the country. Although I’m impressed by the size of some trees, it’s the roots that really draw me in. Like tentacles grabbing for nutrients, it shows how desperately the tree wants to live and how adaptable and worthy it is. This tree is on the shore of a salt water marsh on the Georgia coast. It’s unclear if its roots seek fresh water or merely fight erosion but it’s the only tree just like it for miles along the treeline.
