The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

I went for a walk in the woods the other day. It was my first true adventure as a North Carolinian. When I found this tree at the very back of the mountain, my jaw dropped a little bit because I had just spent my whole hike thinking about how I hope to capture all of the love stories hidden in this place.
