Nice country there.  Great pics.  Those that show the layers of blue mountains are flat terrific.

Awesome pics Crash.  I live here and your photos remind me of why I stay.  You really caught the beauty of the mountains and those biscuits ain't none too shabby either.

That's a magic place.  First class fishing, hiking, climbing, and mountainbiking.  Thanks for the great pics.

those pictures really show off the Smokey Mountains.  Glad you had fun, and look forward to shaking your hand in the near future.

Don't know of a better place than those highlands to spend the rest of my time in the woods.
Great photo's Dave, love the colors of autumn.
Your camp looks well stocked, bet you hated to leave.
Thanks for sharing

That's some purty lookin country down there, I've never been south of Virginia...How far down south do you get those fall leaves turning?

This is pretty much my backyard, and here in the mountains of North Carolina just south of VA we went past peak color in the last week or two at my elevation (2800') and above. 

You'll get fall colors all the way down to Georgia in the mountains.

Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

   Magnificent!

   Lately I have taken up hiking, but when I am at my cabin I like to canoe. Since I have been hiking, canoe trips seem like more of a luxury cruise, because you can pretty much take along whatever you want.

   I never took my dutch oven or iron frying pan, but after looking at these pictures, I have a new plan for next year! Along with some biscuits!

   YUMMY!

Thanks Beast, I always kinda wondered about that.
