When the Summer starts to drag in Miami, my mind wanders to the mountains and my body soon follows. The Pisgah Forest in Western North Carolina is where we escaped to in early September. Heavy rains kept us in the tent throughout our first night in the back country, so we had dinner for breakfast while watching the sun rise behind the Blue Ridge Mountains; Baked beans, hard-boiled eggs and coffee.

Although the landscapes of WNC provide easy work for photographers, this particular trip proved to be a tough one filled with storm clouds and heavy fog. Luckily things cleared up long enough for this shot to take place. It would have been a shame to carry the camera equipment so far into the mountains only to keep it in the dry bag.
