Nature is probably one of the best graphic designers around.  I am always inspired and awed whenever I am out and about enjoying a hike in beautiful Western North Carolina.  These photos are from the hike to Crabtree Falls and the leaves are just about peaking this time of the year.  Added to the adventure, we took the “Devils Whip” on the way back, by accident.  The Devils Whip is route 80 in Marion, NC and it is one twisting and turning road going from an elevation of 2000 feet in twelve miles.  I was in the passenger seat but I was kinda freaking out and stepping on the gas when there was no gas peddle on my side.  If you like natural roller coasters then that is the road for you.  Enjoy the photos!
