A couple of months ago I actually got a short vacation. We made several stops along the way, one of which was Cherokee North Carolina. The blue ridge mountains are beautiful and majestic, giving one plenty of quiet time for reflection. I was only there a short time but I had to try to capture some of the beauty to share with you.

Early sunrise:

Waterfalls just outside Cherokee:

Heavily wooded area on top of “the Dome”:

Sunset our first day:

Wildlife was everywhere, and not bashful!

Hope you enjoyed the images.
