I’m not sure what’s prettier - our limited edition label and fragrance, or this sunset🕯/🌄! Fresh Mint + Lavender made its way to the mountains of Fletcher, NC this weekend for some test sniffing by my #framily. I’d say it passed the test - our #airbnb felt like a refreshing spa with the company of this candle, and it made our sunsets together even sweeter!• • • • • 📸: @rynomyte #seminolecandlecompany #candlesniffing #ncmountains #fletchernc #brewery #sierranevadabrewing #blueghost #avl #smokymountains #sunset #sunset_stream #blueridgemountains #visitsmokies #wnc #candles #soycandles #madebyme #adventureasheville #discover_carolinas #framilyvacation

After eight 100 mile ultras I finally got that elusive Sub 24...as always from the registration process to the finish Will Jorgensen Gail Jorgensen and team put on an excellent event! Super fun weekend, after volunteering all day Saturday @jencoburnsmith and @cheerio7791 ran the 10 miler Sunday morning culminating our exciting weekend! The road tore up my feet and my right Achilles is inflamed and can’t put any pressure or flex it as of right now, but icing and elevating hoping for the best! Soooo much emotion and so much I could say about this 100 miles and maybe one day I will, but suffice it enough to say it’ll always be special to me! Huge thanks to @fatissmartfuel for their continued support of my crazy adventures!!! #sub24hundo #pistolultra #traildancersrunningseries #traptrail24 #dropanfbomb #mountains #mountainlife #lakejunaluska #serenity #meditationspace #traildancers #traildancer #waynesvillenc #crossfit #traildancersrunningseries #mountainlife #optoutside #keto #traildancers #visitsmokies #crossfit #trailrunning #ultrarunning #haynow #828isgreat #ultrarunners #buddhism #altrarunning #embracethespace #yoga #run #howbaddoyouwantit

"Portrait of Waterrock" (Link in biography) What a magical sunset this was. It didn't look like it was going to be anything great until golden hour, then the skies swiftly changed, peaking with this divine display of all colors. As a bonus 4 other friends from the @blueridgemountainlife Facebook group got to witness this too! . . . . . . #blueridgemountains #blueridge #ashevilletrails #blueridgeparkway #blueridgeoutdoors #inspiring_photography_admired #smokymountains #discover_carolinas #appalachians #AVL #travelphotography #northcarolina #outdoors #mountainstones #romanticasheville #playonjacksoncountync #visitnc #visitsmokies #blueridgemoments #WNC #visitasheville #828isgreat #adventureasheville #brysoncity #ashevillelifestyle #asheville #ncoutdoors #explorenc #appalachianmountainclub #appalachian

You've likely heard of the Blue Ridge Parkway but have you heard of the Cherohala Skyway? A National Scenic Byway running 43 miles from Tellico, TN, to Robbinsville, NC, this road offers breathtaking views of our region. The skyway gets its name by combining the names of the two National Forests it crosses: “Chero” from the Cherokee and “hala” from the Nantahala.

#Rhododendrons bloom in early June in the Smokies. The Rhododendron in the Smoky Mountains fall to two types: Rosebay and Catawba. Rosebay rhododendron is the source for the whitish flashes of color that you find in the lower elevations of the park, up to about 5,000 feet. The Catawba rhododendron is the source of the pinkish swatches of color that cover the high elevations. ⠀ Have you booked your #summervacation in the #smokymountains yet? If not, we still have availability at #appalachianescapecabin 👇 ⠀ http://smoky-mountains-cabin.com/availability⠀ #gsmnp #nature #wildflowers #smokiesnature #seesmokies #visitsmokies #familyvacation #familiytime #summergetaway #hiking #naturesurroundings

Some moments and scenes define our perception of the place. This quiet landscape is my perception of Smokies: quiet, beautiful water stream, flowing through a lush green forest. I came there to be amazed by vistas, but found another kind of beauty instead. The one, that does not overload your senses with spectacular views, but soothes your spirit and sets your mind to a quiet state of harmony with the nature. It is not instantly recognizable: being the most visited park in the United States, Smokies might appear busy and way too touristy, which distracts from these subtle scenes. Do not be lazy, make few steps on the trail, and the place will reward you with some wonderful experience. / Little River, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, 2015. ... #gsmnp #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #smokies #appalachianmountains #tennessee #water #summer #findyourpark #visitsmokies #summervibes #travel #naturewonders #mountains #visittennessee #visitnorthcarolina #northcarolina #cherokee

Ali loves hiking up trails and mountains. Before we got married he climbed to the top of Mount Atlas in Morocco. At the moment we are in Kona, Hawaii. I want to climb the Mauna Kea Summit. Ali says I am not ready, but he says he will take me to climb mount Atlas. So guess we are going to Morocco then. We did however, climb Adams Peak in Sri Lanka together. It was difficult, but honestly, the struggle was worth it. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #smokeymountainnationalpark #gatlinburgtn #smokeymountainsnationalpark #madeintn #tennessee #tnvacation #gatlinburgtennessee #gatlinburg #onlyintn #mortonoverlook #visitsmokies #smokiesmountains #travel #travelphotography #travelbloggers #couplebloggers #coupleblog #coupletravel #coupletraveller #travellingcouplegoals #creativetravelcouples #odysseyaz
