Out in the middle of nowhere

live the eagles,

and ospreys,

and kingfishers,

and herons,

and me!

Unique View of Pilot Mountain

December 28, 2011

North Carolina has a very unique natural feature

called Pilot Mountain, which appears to rise out of nowhere.

Native Americans were said to use it as a landmark

and called the mountain Jomeokee –

The “Great Guide” or “Pilot”.

~~~

This view overlooks Lake Larissa,

a man-made lake in a beautiful setting.

I’m lucky enough to work just a few

minutes away from this area.

Click on the first photo to enlarge and

see if you can find the ducks on the lake,

Click on the second photo to make out the unusual

shape of Pilot Mountain a little better.

Click here and here to see more photos taken of Pilot and

the view from the overlook at the state park.

The trails at Pilot Mountain State Park are also

part of the NC Birding Trails.

Spring Friends

Look who we ran into on our walk to the pond ~

An Eastern Towhee who wasn’t shy at all.

He and his mate kept singing back and forth to each other

while they watched us from their perches in the trees.
