Lake Eden, Black Mountain




I have finally gotten my hard drive replaced and am back online! I took these shots this past week of Lake Eden in the resort town of Black Mountain.

Set amidst the Blue Ridge mountains, just below Mt. Mitchell this spot is home to the LEAF Festival (Lake Eden Arts Festival). Formerly the historic Black Mountain College, and presently a summer camp (Camp Rockmont), it's a beautiful 600 acre site. Rolling hills, mountain lakes, streams and woods create a setting which is relaxing and inspiring.










Join in with me for Weekend Reflections and Scenic Sunday!

Debbie - if you haven't found the L.E.A.F. festival yet, it's Oct 14 - 17 there's a link to the site at http://www.climbeverymountain.com/Black_Mountain_North_Carolina.htm I've been to it several times and although it's certainly not the best art / craft festival in the mountains, any excuse to spend the day in Black Mountain is worthy! On my stays in Black mountain I take an early morning walk around the lake (.5 miles one lap) every day and have some wonderful pics.
