looks beautiful. For various reasons we have not camp in a long time and I haven't had a chance to go to the mountains in quite a while. We've canoed (rentals) on the New River and have 2 kayaks. Glad you had a good time.


Oh, so pretty. SO pretty. Love the shot with the red canoe parked by the rock.


Wow! The pictures are gorgeous! I have not been to the mountains on this side of the country. We live in Georgia, now. I grew up on the west coast and have explored those mountains a lot. We're going to have to go north!


Beautiful country. I hope you had a nice time.


What pretty landscape shots. It's not always easy to get everything right, but you certainly accomplished it here, the blue sky with the big billowy clouds, and the shades of green of the mountains, to the reflections of the water. Just beautiful.

northern travler

I've been there, its pretty, but its isolated and the local mountain natives are a bit hostile. The locals consider it their one last domain against northern influx throughout the rest of the area. Guns either on their sides, in the boat, or somewhere within reach.Make no mistake, you will be tresspassing in what they feel is their backyard, literally.Some hold no resentment over the population rising but more are holding on to their past.
