Oppressively Somber

Oppressively Somber Abandon Old Creepy House

Oppressively Somber

What once was a strong and sturdy shell has become oppressively somber standing among the overgrown thicket outside her front door.

For many years she remained strong and sturdy, able to withstand anything thrown at her. Until one-day things become too difficult. The weight of the world came crashing down and rendered her useless.

Even in her darkest hours, you can still see her strength and beauty she possesses.

I was out laying down in the woods, dressed in brown and green clothing and covered in leaves, hoping, waiting and praying to lure in the fanning male turkeys but I received a
 little surprise.  I looked over to see two little eyes staring at me.
  

I could almost hear him say, “Hey lady!  Occupied!”

I told a gentleman that I follow on Instagram last month I never see Belted Kingfisher on my walks with wildlife in mind. Never say never, because you will certainly be proven wrong.

Adult Male Belted Kingfisher

This male Belted Kingfisher was just sitting over one of the little streams on my walk along Bairds Creek.  I sat and watched him for a period of time hoping he was going to come back with a fresh catch.  I think he was a little bummed out about the winter flurries coming down again, as I am.

Inside the Old Cabins Smoky Mountain National Park – We ventured out into the heavy wooded areas of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park trying to locate the old section of cabins on this visit.  Our first attempt was unsuccessful.

We stopped at a local country shop and the gentleman there knew exactly what I was wanting to see and drew us a map.

The cabins were to be met the wrecking ball the following week. With the help of the gentleman’s directions, were successful.

The heavy rains didn’t stop us, but the trees and rain took out our umbrella and we were a muddy mess when everything was said and done.
