What you see in the image aren't cave formations themselves, but rather their reflections on a sheet of extremely clear and still water on the cave floor (the upper quarter of the image has the actual formations). When I first saw this section of the cave, I was struck by what felt like a very disorienting and mesmerizing view. Since the water is so still, you don't actually notice it until you try to figure out the cause of what looks like a perfectly mirrored scene.   #cave     #cavern     #luraycaverns     #caverns     #naturelovers     #nature  _brilliance   #nature  _perfection   #nature  _shots   #earth  _magic   #earth  _unlocked   #earth  _escape   #geologyrocks     #virginia     #earthbound     #visit     #virginia     #beautifuldestinations     #traveling     #travelphotography     #luraycaverns     #caverns     #reflection     #protectnature     #naturephotography     #wondersofnature     #appalachianmountains

Hello from Guangzhou! For our second field trip, we ventured to the ancient village of Shawan. Shawan is a village that has recently received funding to improve its tourism infrastructure. Cultural tourism has been a growing industry in China for some time now. Tourism in China is often a pathway to other forms of economic development, including industrial production of some cultural heritage products. The second leg of our journey was with a heritage organization focused on the preservation and exhibition of the Piaose parade tradition in the Panyu region, of which Shawan Village is a part. The Piaose tradition is a combination of drama, dance, acrobatics, and decorative arts. The form creates an illusion of the Bodhisattva (any person on the path to become a Buddha) floating and was part of a ritual to pray for a good harvest. Initially, the ritual involved papier-mâché representations of the Bodhisattva, but was then innovated to include young children representing the Bodhisattva. It is a stunning illusion supported by some of the most amazing blacksmithing techniques I have seen.

The best pizza in Ashe County (or anywhere else in the NC high country for that matter) is in Lansing at Pie On The Mountain (  @pieonthemountain  ). The second pic is their “carnivore pizza” which features sausage from   @rosemountainfarm  , Benton’s bacon, salami, pepperoni, and ham. It’s excellent!

Throwback Thursday: Interesting look into the past of the John “Gull” Tipton family around 1930. John Tipton operated Cable Mill in Cades Cove during the 1940s and 1950s.

I love running the same trails over and over. I see new things every single time, and I'm more aware of subtle changes in the environment around me. Here's a good example: Day 1 (not pictured), there's no mushroom. Day 2, a beautiful golden 'shroom pops up. Day 3, the 'shroom has a flat cap. What kinds of neat things do you notice on your daily runs (paved or trail)?
