Dupont State Forest stays so busy now, the only way to capture any of the waterfalls without people everywhere is to shoot early or late. I was here just a few minutes before dark last night.

Not sure what I liked more: camping or the full moon light shining through the forest.

In 2016, I captured a sunset at this spot that has become one of my best selling images. In late May, I captured this of the same scene with the rhododendron in bloom and the sun setting to the right of the tree. This one will be a nice spring compliment to the late summer "Lonesome Tree." It is named: "Dreams of Spring" ©Red Rock Photography www.RedRockPhotoNC.com #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkwaydaily #ashevillenc #exploreavl #explorenc #explorecarolina #landscapephotography #art #photography #wncmountains #sunset #spring #828isgreat #adventureasheville #hikenc #getoutdoors #hiking #avl #buymyart

Table Rock and Hawksbill looming over it all, as if to supervise the daily goings on of the little mountain town, or to protect, or to just be majestically gorgeous from every angle

I got hitched to this bourbon drinkin, chess playin, homesteadin weirdo three years ago and it was the best decision of my life. It’s been a wild ride of shared memes, matched arguments, and stepping out of comfort zones. I couldn’t ask for a better partner to tag along with in this thing called life.

Cotton Candy over Roan! I have been really unmotivated to get out and shoot since I got back from Iceland. A hike up to Grassy Ridge with a great group of other photogs with an epic sunrise was just what I needed to get back into the swing of things. Thanks gang and thanks Jim for letting us stay on your mountain! It's easy to take a place for granted but these old hills hold so much magic. So thankful to live in such a beautiful place! . . . #optoutside #828isgreat #getoutstayout #wnc #photooftheday #beautifuldestinations #explorecarolina #adventureasheville #sonyalpha #blueridgemoments #stayandwonder #nature #visitnc #greettheoutdoors #letscamp #hiking #ashevilletrails #discover_carolinas #neverstopexploring #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #landscapephotography #theoutbound #itsamazingoutthere #southernwild #whyiloveasheville #nc_outdoorinc #ScenicNC #sunset #sunset_stream

Rhododendron Blues www.redrockphotonc.com Most of the Rhododendron on the Blue Ridge Parkway are gone, but there are still abundant blooms of flame Azaleas and Mountain Laurel all through the NC sections of the road.

Just a Friday reminder from butterfly weed to bloom where you are planted. Even if that’s in a ditch.

I’m going to really miss views like these • A lot of major things have happened in my life recently including finishing nursing school and passing my boards. The biggest event has yet to come, though, but is in the works. I have accepted a job out in Macon, Georgia and will be moving within the next few weeks. I’m beyond excited for this new chapter of my life and can not wait to see what the future holds, but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t hard leaving these beautiful mountains I call home.

I’ve been a little MIA on this platform lately, as June has been filled with so much of my other work (mostly yoga teaching and practice) and not so many marriages! Isn’t it crazy that it’s already June?? I’m heading home to Miami for a mini-vacay with my bestie @maegandavislac this weekend and I’m so ready for some R+R (ps— I only just found out what “R+R” is 🤪). Here’s a little throwback to this beautiful elopement with Lisa and Mark from last month. They are such a fun loving and kind couple— I really enjoyed working with them! Just aiming to channel this level of stillness and peace before the chaos of travel! #elopementlove #beautifulworld #mountainlove #📸 by @meghanrolfephotography with @elope_outdoors

A rainy and foggy day can be a great thing for trails. When foliage is wet the colors are more bright and vibrant. I shot this during the rain on the Craggy Pinnacle right at the end of the rhododendron peak. #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkwaydaily #ashevillenc #ashevilletrails #blueridgeoutdoors #discover_carolinas #exploreavl #explorenc #explorecarolina #romanticasheville #visitnc #wnc #wncmountains #828isgreat #adventureasheville #hikenc #getoutdoors #photography #art #craggygardens

Doing whatever is the opposite of the rain dance so my shoot this evening doesn’t leave us all soaking to the bones.

Honestly, I don’t understand Instagram and this algorithm. I’ve pretty much given up on trying to pay attention to the analytics. I’ll keep trying to post daily and hope that my photos are being seen by at least a few people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For right now, I’m going to enjoy the fact that it’s summer break and now I can stay up ridiculously late, drink warm coffee all day long, and take naps at lunch. 🤘🏼

📷 . The majestic scenery of the Southern Appalachians is hard to beat, especially during the Catawba Rhododendron blooms in the spring 😍🌸 . While hiking near Mt. Mitchell State Park, views over the Asheville Watershed offer splendid scenes of the North Fork Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains ⛰ . As seen in this image, the statuesque Graybeard Mountain rises tall, as the sixth highest mountain in the Blue Ridge, and patriarch to the Seven Sister peaks in the Swannanoa Valley. . While I had hoped for more dramatic clouds over this area on this outing, I sure was not left disappointed by the evening light cast upon these ridges 😎 . Hope everyone’s having a great Sunday Funday! . #ncoutdoors #appalachian_explorers #ashevilletrails #romanticasheville #blueridgenps #ncstateparks #ncweekend #discover_carolinas #ncoutdoor_inc #visitnc #adventureasheville #brysoncity #ourstatemag #alltrails #828isgreat #wnclifestyles #ncdailydose #blueridgehikingco #frugal_backpacker #trailful #scenicnc #naturalnorthcarolina #theblueridgers #inspireappalachia #southernstatesco #southernlivingmag #outaboutnc #playonnc #adventureappalachia #discover_earth

“Summer” . Nothing says summer like a summer rain and a cool breeze in the higher elevations while the heat turns up in the lower elevations. This was taken late May atop Hawksbill Mountain at the start of Rhododendron season. The whole mountain top was decorated beautifully with Carolina Rhododendrons. . . . #blueridge #blueridgemoments #blueridgemountainlife #blueridgemountains #blueridgeoutdoors #blueridgeparkway #AVL #romanticasheville #ashevilletrails #visitasheville #828isgreat #adventureasheville #ashevillelifestyle #asheville #northcarolina #scenicnc #explorenc #visitnc #WNC #ncoutdoors #discover_carolinas #CarolinaCollectives #wonderofourplanet #makemomentshappen #makingmemoriestogether #rhododendron

I have been known to have my couple follow me down the road for quick photo opportunities. I have also been known to randomly stop and tell them to hop out of their car, ROFL!

I blew it and didn’t do my #meetmemonday this week. So it’s happening today. What can I say, life gets in the way sometimes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. I am an extremely observant person. I can determine emotions and the meaning of certain mannerisms of others pretty quickly. It’s definitely led to some social anxiety problems. 2. No matter how hard I try, I can’t get down a smoothie or a container of yogurt. 3. The only times my arms were ever in shape was when I played baritone in the marching band. 4. I am ridiculously competitive. From ping pong to soccer to limbo. There’s no game too trivial for me. 5. I’ve been stitched up on my kitchen table because of a snowboarding accident. Sliced both shins wide open.

We are loving this perspective of a mountain road. Sometimes we need to step back and look at everything that surrounds us and find beauty in the ordinary. Thanks so much @johan.hakansson.photography for you view. ・・・ 📷 . ~Love is in the Air~ . How can you not love the Blue Ridge Mountains, especially when the clouds seem to paint it before your eyes 😍 . Have a great rest of the weekend folks, and thank you for stopping by to look 🙋‍♂️ . #ncoutdoors #appalachian_explorers #ashevilletrails #romanticasheville #blueridgenps #blueridgemoments #ncweekend #discover_carolinas #ncoutdoor_inc #ncoutdoorculture #visitnc #adventureasheville #adventureappalachia #ourstatemag #alltrails #discoverjacksonnc #explorebrevardnc #wncadvguide #wnclifestyles #ncdailydose #blueridgehikingco #trailful #frugal_backpacker #scenicnc #naturalnorthcarolina #inspireappalachia #southernlivingmag #outaboutnc #playonnc

I’m in tears over these beautiful photos of @sarakbyrne and @philchester getting married in Paris. These two were made for each other and we are so honored to create their wedding bands. Can’t wait to see the film from @ryanmuirhead. Congratulations you gorgeous humans! ✨

Getting a new hairdo today. The older I get, the more boring my hair gets (even though I secretly want a head of purple hair).

Over the weekend, we hiked to Little Bradley falls for a quick trail sesh before I had to return to moving boxes. (More on that another time) When we got there, we came across a group rappelling down it. I realized how annoying that was for our experience. I say this as someone who rappelled down Big Bradley last year. Was I an obnoxious obstacle for people who took the time to hike down and enjoy the waterfall? Was my orange helmet and ropes ruining their photos? It was an amazing experience and I don’t regret it, but now being a spectator has me challenging my perspective on how these activities fall into place with Leave No Trace. I hate to think that while I checked off a cool bucket list experience, I ruined someone else’s who took the time to climb down the technical “trail” to enjoy the waterfall. Our hike wasn’t nearly as grueling and they wrapped up pretty fast and we were able to grab some photos, but it did get me thinking. 🤔Anyways, here’s some photos from our Women Who Explore Asheville group hike. - First two photos were taken by fellow hiker, Gayle, who doesn’t have Instagram.
