Betsy on Black Mountain



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Black Mountain, which is fairly near us, is part of the Cumberland Trail State Park. I captured this picture of my favorite hiking partner at the South Overlook on top of Black Mountain in July, 2007.

I cannot stand heights and look down. I enlarged this picture and got kinda dizzy. Now that it is crazy. It is a great shot of Betsy surrounded by nature at her best.
