I always enjoy your hikes Mole and as usual these photos are great. However, in my opinion, those tree fungi are superb! So sharp and clear. (my brown eyes turn green!)

Thank you for letting us come along with you.

Bernice

A very nice selection of fungi, along with some pretty waterfalls and leaves - what more can you ask for? Love your hiking shots, I need to get out this weekend and see what I can discover.

Wizzard - Glad you enjoyed the hike! You will have to come visit East Tennessee sometime and take a real hike here!!

GW - Thanks so much!

Bernice - Thanks for your very kind words. Glad you liked the mushroom shots - my new tripod helped a lot with the sharpness & dof on those...

Mtnman - And thanks for joining the hike! Hope to see you on a real hike someday...

Harriet - Thanks so much! We had some really fine hikes during the vacation, but I will not bore you with all the 100's of photos we took! So glad my snapshots are encouraging you to go out & explore even more!

Lovely shots as always Mole. I always love shots of dew / rain drops.

You have some beautiful scenery there. I think I may have asked you before, but are you located anywhere near Johnson City? My younger son attended ETSU for his freshman year (then transferred to JMU), and my wife and I always loved to visit that area. Her brother lived in Sevierville (sp?).

Nice as always Mole...lots of color left even at Thanksgiving. We finally had rain on Thanksgiving (a blessing in many eastern cultures) after quite a severe drought. It was not a colorful Fall at all!

i would be shocked if my kids asked to go hiking
we used to go bush when they were young, but then they found skateboards

again you have a great series of photos
i like the fungi, especially the closer one of the 4 fungi
and how you include the foreground in the waterfalls

Ronny - Glad you could "come along" on the hike. Sadly I have not had any time for photography this week, but looking forward to some more trails soon...

Kevin - Thanks! Water sure does work magic in nature sometimes!

TSquare - Very close to Johnson City (short drive or long bike ride...). One of my sons attended ETSU, and one of my daughters lives very close to Sevierville. Hope to see you if you ever come visiting this way!

Jehan - just a bit of color here & there, but certainly worth searching for. We too have had plenty of rain, and some light snow, on & since Thanksgiving.

John - Of course my children are all adults, well past any skateboarding interests! And most do enjoy hiking (even with their old dad...).
So glad you enjoyed these - thanks for the kind & specific comments!
