Last weekend I was on a retreat in the mountains of North Carolina near Valle Cruces. I spent an afternoon taking in the sounds and sights of this beautiful part of our state, and I would like to share a few highlights.
This video of a rushing mountain stream takes less than a minute.
Native wildflowers (click to enlarge):
Another view of the stream, just a few seconds.
All together an uplifting and invigorating afternoon to appreciate the simple beauty of this place.
