Spring (barely) in North Carolina

I had signed up for a "Wildflowers and Waterfalls" photography workshop led by Kevin Adams, a recognized authority on the subject, and a great photographer.  For the past few days we have been based in Highlands which sits at approximately 4,000 feet above sea level.  The waterfalls are beautiful but there are very few wildflowers to be seen.  Spring has been delayed this year by a tenacious winter.  Only a couple of weeks ago there was snow on the ground here.  Anyway, we've been getting a lot of exercise since some of these falls are a good hike away from the trail head.  Here are a couple of the images.

  1. Great stuff! Flowers or not, the falls are certainly worth the effort, eh? Maybe they should rename the excursion "Ferns and Falls". 8-)
