A rare view this weekend in Shining Rock Wilderness Area.  Even though we didn't get the clear views, it was special being in the clouds as their wisps raced by us all evening and the next morning after the rain.

My son Wes climbing Shining Rock with friends.  Shining Rock is a large (supposedly largest) piece of exposed quartz that shines in the sunlight against a backdrop of green evergreens in the NC mountains around 6,300 feet.  High by East coast standards.

Packed and ready to head out after a peaceful night of sleep.  Moderate temps for December at more than 6000 feet in NC with high 30's.  It rained all evening and most of the night, but very soft grassy meadow was better than my own bed.  I am in the red jacket.
