What was supposed to be a dusting - 2 inches of snow in WNC this past weekend turned into an all-out snow storm that dropped about 10 inches at my place in Webb Cove and even more in the mountains southwest of Asheville! So naturally I had to go find the big stuff.
My buddy Andy Lukacs-Ormond and I traveled to the southern part of Haywood County near the Shining Rock Wilderness Area of Pisgah National Forest and hiked along the Mountains to Sea Trail for a couple of miles. Finding a nice house-sized boulder, we set up shop on top for a little over an hour or so and caught some nice light, clouds and blowing snow. There was another storm coming in, so the hour got progressively cloudier. I didn't mind, as you can probably tell from the pics below.
All-in-all, it was a nice surprise and I look forward to what else this winter brings.
