Default Love your photography!

I have family coming up from Florida next week, and they are avid nature photographers. I forwarded your pics to them, so I can "show off" the natural beauty of our home (I live in Jonesborough). They've never been here before, so I'm searching for natural scenery (besides the typical touristy spots, like Grandfather Mountain, etc.) to take them too, but your photographs illustrated to me that we have natural beauty right here in the Tri-Cities. Thank you for sharing!

Idyllic (IMO) home & farm near Rheatown in northern Greene County:





View from Horseback Ridge (elev. approximately 4200') in Unicoi County:



Unidentified wildflower and mushroom on Unicoi Co.'s Stamping Ground Ridge:





Cross Mountain Trail, a 1/2-mile-long connector to the Appalachian Trail, overlooks Johnson Co.'s Shady Valley:

Thanks for the great pictures. I LOVE Shady Valley.

I spent a lot of time in Rheatown in my more formative years. The store there at the Rheatown Crossroads has bluegrass on Saturday nights.

That view from Horseback Ridge is so romantic. Looks like a great place to get away.

I'm glad to see some fresh pix from you Kamoshika! It's been quiet around here lately.

It's a neat place for sure. I only saw one other person while up there, an elderly gentleman reading his Bible and admiring the view.

Went to Roan Mountain again this Tuesday. While the temperature in JC was in the lower 80s when we passed through, it was about 60 atop Roan.

On the way to Roan High Bluff, elev. 6267':



Looking into TN from Roan High Bluff. The Canadian-zone red spruce-Fraser fir forest here is a remnant of the last ice age:



Down below were several specimens of Spreading avens (left) and Roan Mountain bluets (right), endangered plants found only on Roan and a few other places in the Southern Appalachians:



A couple of wildflowers I've yet to identify:





Growing at over 6200', the tastiest strawberries I've ever eaten:



We enjoyed a wonderful picnic next to the rhododendron gardens:



And then explored the bloom-less gardens a bit:









Coming back down the mountain, we spotted this grand display of bee balm:





I've always loved this farm between Roan Mountain and Hampton, especially when it's covered with snow. Across the street is a little restaurant I'll have to try next time, The Waterwheel Cafe:





No matter the weather or the time of year, I've never had a disappointing visit to Roan Mountain.

Hey Kamoshika, I just got done looking at all your photos you have posted. Very nice! You are a good photographer. Do you do any enhancements to your photos, and if so what do you do to get them to look so good?

Gosh, kam, those're AMAZING. I love the farm and the second one, the forest. Sigh. Johnson County is amazing.
