Winter in The Mountains

Recently, along with a friend, I went on a shoot to Max Patch. Max Patch is in extreme northwestern Heyward County almost on the Tennessee line. The Appalachian Trail goes right over the bald. The morning we were there it was quite cold and much to our delight the trees and scrubs were coated in ice. The mountains had an early season snow fall. Several shots of the snow coverd Black Mountains are included along with a shot of a pond near Fletcher.

Cataloochee Elks

On a recent visit to Cataloohee Valley, at the eastern edge of GSMNP, we went on of elk photo shoot. See saw about 30 elks. It is the middle of rutting season and the bulls were very active. The “bugling made the valley sound like a scene from Jurassic Park.
