We had such a wonderful time with Kyotocat when she was here a couple months ago that she came and visited us again at the end of October! She stayed longer this time and we took her to the mountains so she could see some of our favorite places. We drove around the Blue Ridge Parkway (she had never been there before!) and marveled at all the leaves with their brightly changing colors: so many reds, oranges, and yellows! We took her to Asheville and ate at some delicious local spots. We stayed overnight at a Motel 6 that was super greedy and had a sign out front “Wifi here” but made us pay for it! That was super annoying. The next day we took her to the top of Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River. Finally, we hiked to one of our most favorite spots in Linville Gorge. It’s not an easy hike, you literally hike down a mountain, up a stone tower, and then have to hike down the tower and all the way back up the mountain to get back to the car. It’s 100% worth it every time. We shot each other with my Instax, I took 35mm film photos of her, and she took medium format film photos of me with her giant Mamiya that she lugged up and down the mountain! AD was our trusty lookout and did such a good job distracting other people and keeping them from coming over to our spot that we had 2 or 3 uninterrupted hours of shooting and hanging out naked on the top of the tower. =D

Here are some of my favorites from the Instax and my 35mm film!
