The Appalachian range has been called "the vegetation cradle of North America."

Our mountains also cradle some of the most beautiful waterfalls and creeks on the planet.

Watching the water slide over these rocks, I thought of silk flowing around a dancer's lithe body.

And the sky, how the trees reach up to it, as if chanting Look up, Look up!   And so I do.   And then down again to the cradle of earth from which this glorious green grows.

  1. The Appalachians are one of the most popular world's great mountain ranges, I think. I'm looking for someone to write an essay for me about these rare places. The Appalachian Mountains are gentle and really impressive.
