Agony and Ecstasy - North Carolina Outdoors Landscape Appalachian Trail Spring Flowers Sunset
Incredible sunset over blooming rhododendron flowers along the Appalachian Trail at Carvers Gap last summer during our annual Spring in the Highlands workshops. Sometimes Mother Nature can really take you by surprise, putting on an amazing show when you least expect it. On this evening we were buried in pretty heavy fog and it didn't look like we'd see any good light, so we hit the trail and started heading down the mountain. As we came down through the woods I noticed some warm orange light peaking through the trees on the clouds above us. Just as we got out of the forest, the sky went bananas lighting up with these amazing red and orange colors as the fog lifted and the sun started punching through underneath. Just goes to show it's never over until it's over, and sometimes you never know what you'll see out here in the Appalachian Mountains. Hope y'all enjoy the view!
