I majored in Geology and have a degree in Earth Science.  I fell in love with field trips and hiking.  Here in the mountains living against the bosom of the Plott Balsams it feels like home.  Streams dance along the flanks of the Balsams chuckling as they make their way to the sea.

      On the coast of North Carolina you will find the remains of the mountains that used to loom here finely ground up as sand under your feet.   Time and the forces of erosion have done their work.

Here in the mountains you can drive a few miles and find yourself in the most astounding landscapes. Places like the Cradle of Forestry or Dupont State Park ,the Cullasaja Gorge  the Cherohala Skyway or the Blue Ridge Parkway.

We have lakes that are cold and deep built  to control the flooding by the Tennessee Valley Authority.  Now they provide a vacation haven and a cool place to rest during the warm summer days.

We have waterfalls that  take your breath away you can spend hours trying to follow one drop of water as it plummets to stream below.

So here is part of my show.  For those of you who asked, and some of you who wonder.  Thanks to my son and daughter who have introduced me to many of the places that have inspired.  Thanks to my husband for allowing us to live here.
