I spend most of my weekends enjoying outdoor adventures in the heart of the South in a region filled with beautiful mountains, rivers, lakes and waterfalls. Whether hiking in a state park, cycling on a remote country road or taking in the streetscapes at a historic downtown, I’m always on a mission to capture photos to share on this site, and provide helpful information about some of the places I enjoy visiting.
