Random Photos from the Trail

“The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others.” – Robert Baden-Powell

A few months ago, my son and I went hiking at Crowders Mountain near Gastonia, North Carolina. Of course, I brought my camera with me because that’s what I do. While we were hiking up the mountain, I would stop on occasion and take a photo. My son looked at me at one point and was like, “dad, why do you take pictures of random stuff?” I started to think about it, and I realized, I do take pictures of random stuff. From hiking to just being out living life, I realized most of what I photograph is random. Sure, I might plan to stop at that particular spot, but I do take photos of random things all the time.

Crowder’s Mountain was once a mine. Back in the 1970’s it was going to be turned into a mine. The local community wanted to preserve the land, and so they encouraged the state to preserve it. They had seen what mining can do to an area, and they wanted to state to save the mountain. The funds were put together to acquire the land and the mountain. Now it is a popular spot for hikers and groups to enjoy.
