Roan Mountain Hike, October 2010


Last month my husband and I hiked another section of the Appalachian Trail. There were a total of nine of us in our group and the weather was gorgeous.

We started early Friday morning at Bear Branch Road (19E) near Buladean, NC. We had a killer ascent that first day of about 2500 feet over a span of 5 miles. The first day we hiked a total of 10.9 miles and spent the night at Stan Murray Shelter. Day two we covered 11.1 miles and camped at Clyde Smith Shelter. On Sunday we finished up with a six mile hike to Iron Mountain Gap.

Sometimes it is easy to forget how beautiful the state of North Carolina is. One look at one of these vistas changes all of that.

Congrats to Kellie and George!

Last Saturday I shot the wedding of an old friend from high school, Kellie Fritts. Kellie and George had a wonderfully simple ceremony. No bridesmaids. No groomsmen. No bouquet throw. No champagne toasts...No drama. The focus was on them, their close friends and family, and the significance of their special day.

The wedding was held at the historic
J.H. Adams Inn in High Point, NC. What an amazing venue!

George has a great sense of humor, a dry wit. He kept Kellie laughing, making for some great shots.

Congrats to Kellie and George. I wish you all the best. Thanks so much for letting me a part of your special day.
