Those brown signs on the side of the road? Those are my personal favorite kinds of signs. My advice is to allow time in your travel schedule to follow random brown signs.

Revisiting this place in all weather, in all seasons, night and day, has its own kind of magic. It changes—the lights and the fog and the feel— and so do I. But it holds me, solidly, tenderly. My thoughts drift like the clouds, and the mountains stay. 2 days ago by @yellowwood_school
I try not to use quotes too much in my posts, but the truth is I love a good quote. It's comforting when you find one that resonates. It makes you feel like someone else has been there, that you aren't alone. Standing in the middle of Big Meadows watching the stars these beautiful words from John Muir kept running through my mind: “No pain here, no dull empty hours, no fear of the past, no fear of the future. These blessed mountains are so compactly filled with God's beauty, no petty personal hope or experience has room to be." | #shenandoahnationalpark #nationalparkgeek #blueridgemountains #blueridgemoments #BlueRidgeDay #LoveVA #virginiaisbeautiful #virginiaoutdoors #naturalvirginia #visitvirgina #explorevirginia #scenicvirginia #appalachianexplorers #appalachiantrail #liveauthentic #nakedplanet #naturephotography #naturelovers #neverstopexploring #stayandwander #findyourpark #goparks #roamtheplanet #gooutsideandplay #greatoutdoors #hikemoreworryless #landscape #astrophotography #milkyway 3 days ago by @kateguyphotography

A couple of weeks ago I photographed a destination wedding in the mountains of East Tennessee at an amazing location called Sugar Hollow Retreat. This venue has all my favorite things: mountain views, lake access, lodging for all your peeps so you can all rage together for the entire weekend, and that East Tennessee/western North Carolina mountain vibe. I’ve always felt that area is special. When I arrived on site for the weekend, this is what I saw! @sugarhollowretreat 4 days ago by @mandyrhoden

One week ago my dad and I were headed to #shenandoahnationalpark to camp for a couple of days. We had 43 hours in the park, hiked 18 miles on 5 trails, reached 2 summits, hiked 2 waterfalls, spent a night watching the Milky Way, spent the other around the campfire contemplating life, saw countless deer, and took in one amazing sunset.

Wherever you are, enjoy the evening, how the sun walks the horizon before crossing over to be, and we then exist under the realm of the moon... ~Joy Harjo, Becoming Seventy • • • I got to share my favorite mountaintop with my seventy-year-old mother last night. We hiked back down under the stars, headlamps glowing, me holding her hand to help and both of us laughing at how time reverses roles, and still the adventures go on and on. 2 weeks ago by @yellowwood_school
