Canyon Vista Overlook


Good morning,

I have to say the new year has started off on a very positive path. We spent four days in the Endless Mountains in one of the rustic cabins of Worlds End State Park. We photographed, hiked and enjoyed each other’s company. We were fortunate enough to have Bobbi along with Zach, Kelly and I for this adventure.

As we all know here on the East Coast, we’ve been having a milder than normal winter. Well, it just happens that a cold snap drifted in during our visit in the mountains with overnight lows of 0°F and highs in the upper teens. If you’re like me, I enjoy the cold. The winter forms frozen waterfalls, ice along the creeks which to me creates a much more pleasing environment for cold weather photography. We even had a dusting of snow (not nearly enough) but enough to make it pretty.

Here’s a blustery cold sunset from the Canyon Vista Overlook.
