Exploring Johns Mountain

I think we’ve got the bug. The get out and go- the adventure always- the explore, seek and experience infection. I shared pictures from our first trip out in the new adventure vehicle, which I have lovingly named the double-oh Xtra, since it’s a 2000 Xterra, a few weeks ago. We have since taken it out onto forest service roads twice more between the relentless rainy weekends 2020 has provided us in north Georgia, and on our 3rd trip, we joined a group.  We encountered mud puddles, fallen branches and narrow paths, and a downed tree- which the group cut and moved for safe passage across the path. The travel was a ton of fun, exploring with a group was amazing and finding the quaint stage that we all assume was a wedding venue with a view was fantastic. The depth and vastness of the wilderness from the field took my breath away and reminded me that we are all small players in this limitless world. And sometimes, it’s great to feel just how encompassing nature really is.

I enjoy writing, photography, and working in my kitchen. I have a bold personality, a love for dogs, an astonishing lack of fear of judgement and a strong no-hogwash policy. If you love photos of moments captured that share them as they are, imperfections and their raw beauty on display, you have found the right site.
