Hello! I'm Heather.
Artist. Photographer. Explorer. Nature lover. Anti Coal Activist. Bone collector.

I spend my time exploring and studying the Appalachian Mountains. A vast region, often overlooked, but home to some of the most beautiful and lush forests in the world. I am in love with the wilderness, it is my home, my peace, and what keeps me sane. I make my living as an artist, selling jewelry and other creations. I live a very free lifestyle... outside the lines society has drawn for us. THIS is the society that I love and respect.

The field road leading to the house. First picture is when we went in, second is coming out. I don’t think I’ve ever felt such bitter cold.

This house. My goodness. It sits up on a little knoll, in a huge field. It’s surrounded by trees, and appeared as a huge shadowy mass from a distant road. We managed to find our way to it, we simply had to see it up close and explore. The field was gated. We couldn’t help but to climb the fence and get closer. It was just one of those places that draws you in… at least me anyway.     The front view of the house tells you nothing. This house is literally probably the biggest we’ve came across. Behind this front part you see here, there is a whole other section… about as big as 4 or 5 “normal” houses. It was obviously owned by some pretty wealthy people.      It’s in horrible condition. Falling in, and very dangerous. I try to respect the limits of places like this, and usually don’t push my luck too far. Almost everything was either rotten or cracked.       We went inside. But, didn’t get to explore too much. There were several rooms that were caved completely in… and most of floors were rotten to the point you could see through them. I wish we could have walked through the whole house. I guess not being able to see it all leaves a little piece of mystery in my mind.        My heart will forever be captured by places like this.

This house was almost intimidating upon walking up to it. It stood so huge, so… destroyed. Falling in, bored up. And this… looked like a huge eye… watching.
