crystal conifers

"Most with cones for seeds, most with needles for leaves
C is for conifers, my kind of trees..." -TMBG

When it is 9deg. outside the condensation on the inside of the windows does magnificent things.  This crystalline forest grew overnight and stayed three days.

Grandfather Mountain, NC.

Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina, USA
Looking across the "Mile High Swinging Bridge" at Linville Peak.  This weather yesterday was a beautiful gray overcast with pleasant temperatures and calm breeze.  It felt so good to be back on the mountain viewing the world from on high.  Hawksbill, Roan and Mitchell were all easily seen in the distance. Have you never been?  You should make a distinct attempt at getting there- satisfaction guaranteed.
