It’s not everyday you get to see frost formations like this on Tater Hill. At roughly 4000 ft elevation, the clouds and fog stick to the branches of the trees and leave a trace of white behind. How cool is it to live in the High Country?
It was majestic driving up into Eagles Nest in Banner Elk this morning. All the trees were glazed with a beautiful rime ice. It’s such a peculiar and rare event that it almost makes you feel like you’re on a different planet. The effect is truly mesmerizing. It seems like every day in the mountains there’s another unique experience to celebrate.
One of the coolest parts of my job is being out in the elements every season, every year. Here I am in Echota showing condos in the snow. We were the only ones around and I remember how calm and serene the scenery was. It was a very fun day showing condos in Boone, NC!

Her name is Kitty Kane Cat and she has a mind of her own but definitely enjoys human company and affection. She doesn’t talk which after a day in real estate can be a comfort. But she lets me know immediately if she’s unhappy. She is rarely a bad kitty and never catty or contumacious. With the amount Sharon travels, Kitty Kane is becoming a dominant female figure in my life, as scratchy as that may seem…
Tuesday was one of those surreal days we get while showing property. We were out looking at log cabins in the Boone/Valle Crucis area and then transitioned to rustic condos and townhomes. It started to snow when we left the office in the morning and it just kept coming down! BIG snowflakes floated down so elegantly and covered everything with such beauty. There was something pure about showing properties while it was snowing and being the only ones in sight. I haven’t had that much fun showing property in some time!

It was a chilly morning out on the South Fork in Ashe County! Here you see a wide stretch of the New River scattered with big ice chunks floating towards Todd, NC. Rural Ashe County real estate sure is fine!
Here’s a set of falls below Whitetop Mountain. It’s one of my favorite sets of rapids and changes dramatically with rainfall or snow runoff. It’s high today, loud, snowy and beautiful. It epitomizes peace, tranquility and all the other reasons I moved to the mountains for. Somehow just standing by them makes me feel more human and I guess that’s why I live here.
