lovely capture. looking at your work really transports me in a different place. great job dot.
Love the Archway. It looks very inviting.I can't believe you didn't get any rain - we got 11.5 to 18 inches. There was flooding everywhere, thankfully my area stayed dry and no excessive flooding. My daughter still has water standing in her front yard. Maybe by the time the season is over you guys will get some much needed rain.Thanks for your nice comment about my changes on my blog.
I'd love to!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a lovely start to a very fun trail to hike! I've only hiked the A.T. in PA, but I'd love to explore more!
That is a beautiful start anyway.
I watched a documentry on Hiking this trail.. Grulling stuff. But such fun characters it might be worth it. :D
Lovely!Yes, lets do it :-)
very beautiful. it seems to be a gate to a very interesting place
I wish you had gotten pictures of the apple orchards.
So this is where the trail begins! I've hiked the trail (years ago now) at the other end in New Hampshire and Maine. On clear days, the view from the tops of the mountains there are outstanding. ;-)
Dot: What a wonderful place to begin, I read a book of a person who did the 2100 miles and it was interesting.
What a beautiful stone arch! Fabulous!
Neat .. I walked a bit of the trail when I was in Boston a few years ago ... :-Daryl
Amazing stone arch! Great photo!
That is one long trail Dot.I like the idea of hiking, but don't know how far I'd get...lol
DotMarvelous "portal"Great image.Thanks for visit my flowers!Santilli
Lovely stone archway!Sure makes it look inviting to keep on walking - now if the trail were all paved.... :)
Sounds good to me. I walked 8 miles on the Appalachian Trail this past Saturday in Maryland.
O! I see a bench just inside the arch! Will you post that over on our bench blog? Neat photo-- was enjoying the arch and then the rock pavement and then saw the bench that is also curved!!!!!!!!!!
This looks lovely~ quite the arch!
That's quite the entrance way to the start of a trail.. nice.
One of my instructors at tech wants to hike the trail all the way to Maine and back to Georgia. I say 'go!'.I was reading a few weeks ago, something about some folks over in Alabama wants to extend the Appalachian Trail from Springer Mountain to Alabama, because that is where the trail should actually start/end. I can't remember exactly where/what mountain they were talking about.
Marvellous photograph very good shot!
Hi Dot! This one looks familiar, you were not far from my place, just across the holler. Have a good one!
Ah the Appalachian Trail …What a hike if you do it all...Great picture the stone arch is awesome
Oh it looks great, let's go.A question, where is Andrea?
An inviting archway... Makes me want to eXplore further. I suspect that was the intent, eh?
Wow Dot I have just come over because I know you thought up Skywatch originally. It has grown so big now and I am fairly new to it, posting for the last couple of months. But I got curious as to who Dot was. So I came.And I saw - those shots of the spider and the wasp - absolutely awesome. The definition and contrast - perfect. The flowers are the same and the archway looks so exciting...I'll be back. :0)
I wondered how far it was to Maine from Georgia. Thanks for the info. Dot. Pappy
A great start to the hike.
I like the entry. Very enticing. I'd want to go on this trail. ;-)Paz
