I waited all winter for some real snow on the Outer Banks. It never materialized. Last week I decided to chase it to the NC High Country, as the big northeaster off the coast was forecast to wrap around snow into the mountains. It snowed about 3" in Boone, and the high peaks got over 6". But the temperatures were around 10 last Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. And the wind was 20-35 too! I drove into Tennessee to get to the top of Roan Mountain at Carver's Gap on the NC border. For this shot I parked and hiked about .5 mile up on the bald. The wind chill was -15!! I walked and photographed for about an hour in an amazing winter wonderland. Now I'm ready for spring!
I hope you enjoy it,
