The Source.....

Sometimes...a few quick breathes is all it takes to restoke ones inner fire. And it is those same bursts of air that keep the fire burning hot all year...

The Green River runs all year, and for many, offers a constant theatre to perform a few acts of fluid aggression. The green is not necessarily a destination....but the Source.

Therefore, we at Team Swain will continue to contribute visual tributes to that little furnace down in Hendersonville..... we refer to as the Source.

Ravens Fork, NC

There is no better place to be in the fall than Western NC...We are very proud of this. And if ones desire is to witness the fine fall foilage that is presently in full bloom, there are a couple of destinations that one might not find in the average guide book. We took the opportunity to do a bit of leaf watching at one of our favorite locations. It started out as just another warm fall day. It was in the upper 70's, sunny, and we had recieved several inches of rain the evening prior. As it turned out, we weren't the only folks trying to embrace the fall colors. When we arrived at the Ravens Fork Trailhead, there were a baker's dozen of the usual suspects. The water had dropped out a lot quicker than was anticipated, but no one cancelled their tour despite having minimal water. here are a few leaf shots...Enjoy!
