Got Waterfalls?

Blowing Rock is known for it’s high concentration of waterfalls.  If you hike anywhere along the Blue Ridge Parkway you’ll be sure to find breathtaking waterfalls like the one above.  This is a great place to live!

Beautiful Grandmother Mountain

Grandmother Mountain is one of my favorite mountains in the High Country.  The vegetation is unique which consists of  short, scraggly trees (due to high elevation) and thick rhododendron.  The moss covers the boulders like a blanket of fuzzy sea foam.  It’s truly an incredible place.

Page plays Canon in D in the Clouds

A few days ago my sister was in town from Boston, MA to visit the family.  We wanted to record a song for her website but it was incredibly rainy outside.  We brainstormed for a bit and finally found the perfect venue!  This turned out to be a great video and we had a lot of fun making it.  We hope you enjoy Canon in D under the beautiful Linn Cove Viaduct on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Boone NC: Mountains with Character

The Appalachian Mountains were formed roughly 480 million years ago (wikipedia).  Needless to say, these mountains are old!  You can see the new growth as spring creeps up the blue ridge mountains.  It’s best if you can get to the top of a big mountain like Grandfather Mountain or Beech Mountain.  It’s just as breathtaking as the vibrant colors of fall in the high country.  If you haven’t seen this natural phenomenon yet, add it to your bucket list!
