We’re excited to share some stories in our hometown before heading off to New England and Yosemite in the fall! If you’re in or near Philly, come gather ‘round and hear some stories from the book at @headhousebooks on Tues, 9/18 at 7:30PM 🌲🌝📖🌾
Sunday seems to be a day where we all can get real with one another at least that’s the sense I get. Often however I worry that my Sunday posts are offensive to some. I don’t mean to be a turn off but my heart reminds me regularly I have a story to tell. Well, part of my story is I’ve lost lots of friends over the years. A lot! I’m not just talking about acquaintances either. And it continues as a result of getting older and my friends are getting older. Last Saturday another friend was laid to rest. Counting my father who died last July 23rd I’ve lost 10 friends in just barely over a year, almost one per month. That weighs heavy and I know many of you are experiencing the same thing. Last Saturday I had to speak at the funeral and as I prepared days before I remembered a verse in the Bible that says “And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope,” 1 Thessalonians‬ ‭4:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬. The apostle Paul goes on to say, “For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died. We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words,” 1 Thessalonians‬ ‭4:14-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬ This passage is a great encouragement and filled with hope. If you are going through some hard things let this passage bring you comfort today. 😊 Hoping everyone has a very blessed day! Please remember the people in the path of Hurricane Florence and the ones who have lost family and friends. #gsmnp #smokymountainphotography #smokiesfrieinds #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmoky
Go home leg from last week as the sun hides behind the mountains ⛰✈️ I really have an itch to go camping in the mountains. Anyone have recommendations for camping in the Great Smoky? I hope everyone is safe with the hurricane on the East Coast! + + + 夕焼けとグレートスモーキー山脈。山を見るとキャンプしたい気分になります。仕事が忙しくて休暇が中々取れないので残念ですが。今ハリケーンが近いので皆さんお気をつけて下さい。

From destruction, there is new life. From ashes to spores. I’ve always loved the idea of the cycle of a Phoenix. To be reborn, to be remade. At times I feel like I am burning away pieces of myself in order to become a more perfect, more alive, more true version of myself. #greatsmoky #burnt #foliage #newgrowth #regeneration #photography #upclose #nature #photography #passionproject
Simplicity | This photo gives me a sense of tranquility and inspires a life in simplicity. This is one of those unassuming photos ... a simple subject, simple composition, few colors and a simple post processing. Sometimes you do not have to complicate or overdo because nature is the one who did all the work. ∙ ∙∙∙∙∙·▫▫ᵒᴼᵒ▫ₒₒ▫ᵒᴼᵒ▫ₒₒ▫ᵒᴼᵒ▫·∙∙∙∙∙ ∙ Simplicidade | Essa foto me passa uma sensação de tranquilidade e inspira uma vida na simplicidade.

Already thinking about all the stress, work, and growth this semester 📚
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.....even if it's a 15 hour drive 🚗

Mrs. Gehrke’s writings were used as one of the many testimonials that illustrated the great commonality that Americans find in their parks. Her love for the parks and that specific line has always stuck with me.

Almost thought today is still Monday cause the way I be feeling about this blues... It’s always so hard to come back from a great trip over the weekend, knowing that you’re a couple days away from spending the upcoming weekend with your GFF and meeting instafriends offline and then gotta go back to work for two days before you go on an extended long weekend trip to WY, SD and ND. I mean... #thestruggleisreal 🌲⛰💚 #theweekender #weekendwarrior #themountainsarecalling #cloudsfordays #rainclouds #cloudporn #greatsmokymountains #smokythebear #onlyyou #greatsmokynps #greatsmoky #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark
Park number 33 and my first for southeast region! My biggest ordeal while in the park was surprisingly not dealing with the summer traffic but taming my hair down so I’m not being mistaken as a new species out there in the wilderness 🦁 #bigfoot #ibelieve #greatsmokymountains #onlyyou #themountainsarecalling #andimustgo #mountainsfordays #cloudporn #greatsmokynps #greatsmoky #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark

Head to Great Smoky Mountains National Park for a forest getaway. These mountains are among the oldest on earth and harbor one of the world’s best examples of deciduous forest, more than 100 species of native trees and such diversity of wildlife (even black bears) that the park has been designated an international biosphere reserve.

The Cable Mill in Cades Cove is still functioning, although today it wasn’t running. They still mill corn after over 150 years. . . . . . . . . #unescoworldheritage #unesco @unesco @unescoworldheritage #greatsmoky #greatsmokies #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #cadescove #cadescoveloop #cablemill
Only a couple of miles from #BlueMountainLodge down Grassy Branch Rd, cross the West Prong of Little Pigeon river and follow the quiet road to Emerts Cove Covered bridge. Nestled in #GreatSmoky MountainsNationalPark, just minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg, thsi bridge is dedicated to the area's first family of settlers. Frederick Emert was a Revolutionary War soldier who found this haven in 1784, calling it Emerts Cove. Travel another half-mile to visit the cemetery where he is buried. There are numerous opportunities for the entire family such as fishing, hiking, swimming, rafting, golfing, bird watching and wildlife viewing. #SmokyMountains #historicplaces #sightseeing #nature #pittmancenter #sevierville #vacation #gatlinburg Book your stay now www.smoky-mountains-cabin.com/book
