Nantahala National Forest, Share the Experience (2017)

“Though some trails within the Nantahala National Forest are closed to bikes, the Tsali singletrack trails are nationally known for great mountain biking and generally rated as moderately difficult. Tsali (Sah-lee) Recreation Area’s four-loop system offers a variety of landscapes, and offer alternating days for mountain bikes and horses, so check before you go. You can climb one-foot wide rugged paths or travel flat, wide roads. Tsali’s trails meander through mixed pine and hardwoods on a peninsula stretching into Fontana Lake.”

I have always loved photography! I have also had the privilege to always have a camera, travel to beautiful places, and work with some incredible professional artists and photographers.  I continue to improve my skills, acquire better photography equipment, and am always available for hire.

Over the past decade, I have acquired a massive digital photo collection from thousands of locations that no one has ever seen.  I decided to make it my mission to go through my entire inventory and share it via geo-tagging on google maps, for the whole world to see.

These eyes have seen many things and continue to seek beauty everywhere I go.  I hope you enjoy browsing my collection!
