Breathtaking


The North Carolina Wall, Linville Gorge

“The trail ended abruptly at the overlook.
It never failed to take her breath away:
a cliff face where the forest simply opened
and the mountain dropped away at your feet,
hundreds of feet of limestone wall
that would be a tough scramble even for a squirrel.”

Barbara Kingsolver, 1955-
“A Prodigal Summer”
