Craggy Gardens Ranger Station

 


Barely visible with the blue tints in the air, there's the Burnett Reservoir, the Asheville water source.

The parking lot was mobbed, and only porta-potties were available for those in need.  This shot shows the peak where hikers can come around from the Picnic Area on the western side of Craggy Gardens, and the Craggy Tunnel, where the Parkway continued on north-east.

I'm always glad when a tourist hiker is wearing red so they show up on the viewing place on the Craggy Bald. It's not the very top of Craggy Gardens, but pretty close to it.



Looking through the tree branches to see the reservoir, it's only visible if you knew where to look!

OK, I've got more from the CG Ranger Station...tomorrow!

Today's Quote:
The study of hado tells us that the energetic vibrations from our thoughts affect our physical realities.

What's HADO?
Walking through a Japanese garden, one truly feels the life force energy that is known as Hado.  Hado isn't just present in Japan, but it is a concept that has existed in Japan for centuries. The two Japanese characters that make up the word Hado mean "wave" and "move" -- perfect words to describe the energy vibrations that permeate all life.  Hado is present in all things, animate and inanimate. It resides everywhere, even in the air and in people.
