Photos of the Snow Storm in Boone, NC

A sleepy Boone, NC on the morning of a big snow.

I woke up this morning to take a couple of photos of the big snow storm that came in overnight.  The photo above was taken at dawn on King St, downtown Boone, NC.  I wanted to capture the snow and the beauty of this sleepy mountain town.  When people think of Boone, a lot of people think of our historic downtown – Mast General Store, Our Daily Bread, Melanies…

Snow storms like this are one of the many reasons we love the High Country!

Fall is almost here in the High Country!

It’s the beginning of my favorite time of year in Boone, NC!  Crisp temperatures, fall colors, leaves changing, pumpkins, you name it!  Here’s a photo I took the other day while going for a hike off the Blue Ridge Parkway.  What a beautiful day it was to be outside in the mountains.  Keep checking back as I intend to be very photo happy for the next two months.  Cheers!

Waterfalls – Gragg Prong in Mid-May

BobdeCamara-GraggProng-1

Matt and I took a nice hike this morning down to Gragg Prong Falls down below the Blue Ridge Parkway below Linville.  It was majestic with the sun rising projecting slanting, golden light on the time-smoothed, granite slabs surrounding this water hole.  There’s nothing like spending a morning in the mountains in May!

Big Snow in Boone, NC!

Yesterday we had the biggest snow of the season with a range of probably 4-8 inches in the High Country! It’s always a treat to get a big snow and it’s an even bigger treat to go out and play in it! The four seasons are one reason folks like living here and winter is no exception. While it doesn’t look like we’ll get anymore snow this week, the temperature will take a dive and we’ll dip below 0 degrees in the next day or two. Yikes!! This weather is great for the skiing so if you’re thinking about making a trip, come on up this weekend for great conditions and enjoy the most snow of the season!

First Snow in Boone of 2014!

FirstSnowofYear-BooneNC-2014-1

It was beautiful seeing the snowflakes once again falling on our winter wonderland! It always stuns me to realize what an enchanting universe we enjoy living up here in the mountains. Invigorating is perhaps the appropriate expression to describe winter’s first snow. Stately hardwood trees, scent of wood in the air and woodsmoke curling up the chimneys, a crisp snap in the air and brilliantly blue skies all tell me that the most beautiful time of year is upon us. Come marvel at the majesty with us – come to the mountains!

Sharon’s Daffodils

The flowers at Sharon’s farm are emerging in full spring glory. Here’s a wave of daffodils. Last December I planted 1000 more which are just breaking ground. The forsythia are beginning to riot as we’ll. What a bounty this time of year is – especially after the winter we’ve endured. Sharon says to say those daffodils are named “Ice Follies.”
