History rocks, during the Second World War these soldiers were training for low altitude mountain climbing in West Virginia.

You will have to zoom in to see the tree sits. Repost: @appalachiansagainstpipelines Today(4/23) is DAY 231 at the Yellow Finch tree sits in the path of the Mountain Valley Pipeline. . We’ve got some changes happening on this protected hillside— both Phillip and Skipper have come down from their respective blockades and been replaced by anonymous pipeline fighters in the trees. . The tree sits are still here! And so are these trees, some of the last left standing in the pipeline’s path. . Phillip says, “After more than 6 months of living in my tree I have made the decision to come down and be replaced by a new, anonymous sitter. Perhaps someday I’ll be able to write and speak about my time in the tree more coherently but for the time being I’m left speechless. My 6 months in the tree were remarkable in many ways and I thoroughly enjoyed every day I had the privilege of living in the canopy. . Fight on and fuck the MVP, Phillip” . And Skipper says, “I am a 69 year old grandfather. As you may imagine, my reasons for participating in this tree sit were complex. One is that I wanted to bring attention to the looming climate crisis and inspire others to act in defense of our planet’s ecosystems. . My time in the tree made me more aware than ever of the urgent need to change the path our civilization is on. Our new path must include social and environmental justice, a new more nurturing relationship with the only planet we have, and compassion for all those on this journey, plants, animals and humans.” .

"I don't want no scrub"...but I gotta wear em cus my clothes are in the laundry🧖‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I woke up at 5am in Blue Mountain Shelter to flashes of lightning and thunder that sounded like the sky was splitting open. We decided to walk the 2 miles to the next road crossing and stay at Top of Georgia hostel. Usually I just wear my rain gear while washing my clothes, but there they gave you scrubs! Guess which song will be in my head for the next 30 miles? . . . . . #appalachiantrail #at2019 #atclassof2019 #atthruhike #appalachianmountains #trektheat #nobo #thruhiking #thruhiker #hikertrash #womenwhohike #optoutside #exploremore

Half my people are from #appalachianmountains Big fan of #blues done with handmade instruments like a #diddleybow done right.. #seasicksteve you can't teach an old dog new tricks . "The diddley bow is a single-stringed Americaninstrument which influenced the development of the blues sound. It consists of a single string of baling wire tensioned between two nails on a board over a glass bottle, which is used both as a bridge and as a means to magnify the instrument's sound. It was traditionally considered a starter or children's instrument in the Deep South, especially in the African American community, and is rarely heard outside the rural South, but it may have been influenced to some degree by West African instruments.[1] Other nicknames for this instrument include "jitterbug" or "one-string", while an ethnomusicologist would formally call it a "monochord zither".

**Super exciting announcement ahead!** 🌿 As you all have noticed, Roan Mountain has essentially become my home for intimate weddings and sessions. Roan has honestly given me so much - not only has it given me the most amazing couples to photograph, but it’s also a place of joy, refreshment, solace. A place where I found myself photographically. It’s a new home for me and I’m so grateful. 🌿 With Leave No Trace being SO important these days and as I book more and more Roan weddings, I’ve decided it’s time to give back! I received some info today and I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be donating 5% of each Roan wedding booked directly to the trail maintenance club that takes care of the Appalachian Trail and balds at Carver’s Gap (which is not actually within the state park boundary, but a part of the national Forest). This club also cares for the Beauty Spot and Laurel Falls- two other amazing places in East TN on the Appalachian Trail. All donations to this club go directly to trail maintenance, cleanup, monitoring, re-building etc! 🌿 I couldn’t be more excited to support such a great club that takes such amazing care of our trails here in northeast Tennessee! 🌿 (With this, Ive also decided to only take a select amount of Roan weddings and elopements for 2020, but details on that are still being worked out.)

Just a update. Sunday I left the NOC around 830 and did 16.2 to Brown Fork Shelter and tented out. Monday I did 12.8 to Fontana Dam Shelter. Yesterday I entered the Smokey Mountains with 15.1 to the Russel Field Shelter where there was a Snorlax and his friends inthe shelter keeping everyone up. Today 16.4 to the Double Spring Gap Shelter. Mile 197.2. Going strong so far. Up and over Clingsmans Dome tomorrow morning and mile 200. Skipping Gatlinburg and going to the mile 210.8 Icewater Spring Shelter. Trying to get out of the Smokey’s ASAP too many regulations so 5 days total. Going to be at Davenport on Saturday. #hiking #northcarolina #smokeymountains #backpacking #appalachianmountains #getoutside #appalachiantrail #nature #alpine #landscape #picoftheday #mountains #mountain #travel #art #sunset #bluesky #mountaineering #adventure #picoftheday #sky #wilderness #outdoors #scenery #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #explore #instagood #rei1440project #forest

LET’S GO ON AN ADVENTURE SOMEWHERE IN THIS MAGICAL STATE OF OURS. - I use all natural light, that means no flash, no studio lighting, and no reflectors. We shoot on location at whatever mountain we decide to conquer that day. We live in North Carolina, every day is an adventure here. - But seriously, my photo shoots are always carefree and fun, with lots of movement, playing with hair, and laughter. I’m going to make you work and it’ll be so fun. I’ll show you pictures in between outfits and bonus you can bring a friend to really make you laugh. - My goal is to make you comfortable enough to be slightly weird but still normal to show your true smile to friends and family. xoxo

I’ve let this account go dormant for a bit as I’ve been trying to distant myself from social media as a whole, but I’m heading up to one of my favorite spots to camp tonight and thought I’d share this photo from last fall. Being from the coast, it blows my mind how many people have never made it out to the mountain side of the state. It’s a fairly short drive and can be done in a day trip or quick overnight if you dig deep into that adventurous spirit. While the beaches of NC are pretty hard to beat, there’s no better feeling than disappearing into the mountain wilderness for a night or two. The best views are the ones you have to work for. 📸: @folkandwayfarer

Another thing I like about 828 is the 300 plus something miles of Appalachian Trail that runs through WNC. Since my thru hike in 2007 I support the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. As a member I receive Journeys, the official AT magazine. I took photos of the article and pictures I am reading right now. As spring has sprung and I feed the birds and watch them build their nests and prepare for their chicks - I like the message in this article, series of 3 photos. #appalachiantrail #appalachianmountains #my828lifeadventures #appalachian #thruhike #thruhiker @appalachiantrail #hikertrash #whiteblaze #birds #migratorybirds #atjourney #wnc #naturelover #naturelovers #wildeast #ebird #birdsofnorthamerica limit cats outside during baby bird season put bells on their necks

I have my five-year-old daughter to thank for me photographing this sunrise. We were spending the night at Skyland and I woke to her looking out the westward facing window to see if the sun had come up. I hadn’t planned to get up early as the forecast was bad but I thought I’d give my wife a chance to sleep longer and asked my daughter if she wanted to go watch the sunrise. She said yes so we dressed quickly and hopped in the car. We were greeted by this view. Maybe I won’t complain when she wakes me up early in the future.

Ok, get out your Kleenex. I knew I was going to the mountains yesterday and felt a strong sense that I should take with me a couple of daddies cameras. He always loved to photograph the mountains. Today when I was downloading my shots, I found 20 Bill Nichols originals that have never been seen before. This one was my favorite of the 20. This was made about a year ago on one of his last photography adventures. I hope you enjoy. #blueridgemountains #greatsmokymountains #billnichols #grandfstherofclogging #epicclogger #appalachianmountains

I forgot about 🌏 day! I am beyond lucky to have been able to travel and hike through so many beautiful places with Matt including large sections of the Appalachian Trail. One of our goals is to hike it now or in retirement... we met so many people exploring last year, it was amazing and I can’t wait to see what’s in store this year. Northern Michigan maybe?!

down the rabbit hole I find myself again ~ it is truly mesmerizing to see how the forest types & plant life change as you change elevation in the Smokies. I hadn’t been to Mt. LeConte ever, until yesterday and it was a humbling experience. Spring is just starting to show itself at the very top with dandelions just starting to bloom.. the mountains go on forever - it reminded me of the beach horizons. the forests at these higher elevations are SO dense compared to what I normally hike. it’s spooky. scroll to see a black bear cub find a comfy nap spot! 🌲 1,2,3 - near newfound gap road; 4,5,6 - Mt LeConte; 7 - newfound gap road north #gsmnp #greatsmokymountains #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #appalachianmountains #appalachia #newfoundgap #tennessee #northcarolina #gatlinburg #smokymountains #nofilter #nature #blackbear #nationalpark #gsm #getoutandplay #hike #nationalparkweek #leaveitbetter #leavenotrace #keepamericabeautiful
