A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking a little jaunt through the mountains just outside of Boone, NC.
Moses H. Cone Manor Memorial Park is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and about a 20 minute drive from downtown Boone. The hike is about 5 miles round trip from the parking lot and showcases the kind of scenery you only dream of viewing from your kitchen window or front porch. Sweeping hills with a backdrop of blue-hued mountains in the distance all accented by puffy white clouds. Thanks, NC! The walk takes you through a hilltop forest with tons of flowers and wildlife.
And at the top… an old(but safe to climb) firetower.
Hey look, it’s me and Jason!
I played around a bit with some panorama shots in an attempt to recreate the view.
Beautiful day with wonderful views and we played a bit… Look over there!
This is what happens when I’m in front of the camera.
And no photoadventure would be complete without an artsy still life. If you’re in Boone and want a walk with fabulous panoramic views, check out Moses Cone.
