Hello! I'm Heather.
Artist. Photographer. Explorer. Environmentalist. 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.

This “field” was absolutely FULL of wildflowers! There were so many different species, all growing among each other. This was honestly quite a dreadful section of the hike… an old abandoned “gravel” road that has basically turned into a muddy swamp. Mud holes nearly up to my knees in places. Not very fun… not for 2 miles. But walking through all these beautiful flowers made it a little more tolerable. I would say pleasant, but then I remember all the strange squishy things that ended up between my toes along the way heh. But the flowers…they were so so so gorgeous, and I thoroughly enjoyed their company. (:
