The wind was whipping up to 55 mph
all throughout the night and -still-
into this morning.
I need to work on my 'gusty wind'
photographing skills and will endeavor
to do so! I tried several shots but they
just don't convey the rushing sound,
the sheer and sustained blasting nature of a
steady mountain breeze and the up gusts!
The little wiggles (as I call them; the steady
back and forth
wiggling motion of leaves
that I have only, thus far, seen
in the mountains) are altogether gone;
replaced by the breezes of a
(I'm sure) well on its way.
A rather large tree growing up entirely out of a rock.
The upward angle gives the purveyor some
idea of the magnitude
of the trees of the Appalachians.
The forest floor as it is currently here.
Love it. Love it :)

Dear reader: What is it?
Colors across the street
for you to enjoy!
I am still chattering inside
from the chill.
