My family drove up into the beautiful (little) mountains outside of Boone to pick out a Christmas tree for my mom and sisters. It was a chilly fresh morning with gorgeous light breaking out over the trees.
My family drove up to Linville Gorge Wilderness to breath in the beauty of Fall. We could not have timed it more perfectly on purpose bursting onto the scene as the leaves were at the peak of their spectacular beauty. We climbed up the Hawksbill trail and broke out of the trees onto a sea, rippling and flowing with vibrant reds, yellows, oranges and so forth. If you stood on the top and did a complete 360, you would lose your breath at the magnitude of color lying beneath you. (PS. John did a 360 panorama from the top, let’s see if we can get him to do a blogpost. )

Part 2 of the beach trip was a little delayed, I’m sorry. I had a few (pleasant) unexpected things come up and didn’t have time to get these photos up on the blog to you as soon as I had wanted to! But here they finally are.
There’s something about sunrise that has a touch of magic in it. The color, the light, slowing appearing out of no where and chasing away the darkness.. creating a masterpiece over the water..
It makes your soul burst.. it makes you dance. It makes you worship the Painter.
Of course we had to get a TOMS picture in.. For every pair of TOMS shoes you buy, they give a brand new pair to a child in need.
