Hallee Hirsh-Martin - halleeonearth - French Broad, Appalachians Photo
As someone who lives in one of the regions of the Appalachians, although in a different state from where there this picture is take, i can tell you that their sight can be breathtaking. We have a similarly-sized river in my area, though i don't believe it's nearly as old, which is beautiful on a foggy morning. We've been getting a lot of foggy mornings this year. Mornings where the fog reaches almost to the heights of the mountains

Anyways, on to this photo posted by Hallee Hirsh-Martin on her Instagram is absolutely beautiful. The photo was taken along the French Broad River in North Carolina. From what she posts she's definitely an incredible person with an incredible family. Living a life that i do hope to live, in time. A simplified life. If you're looking for someone to inspire you then definitely follow her Instagram. For real, I consider her account amongst the top accounts on Instagram. This photo of her standing by the river, watching the water and fog roll by, just exudes peace. Impermanence

Canyon de Chelly is a well known national monument and is one of the most popular in the United States. Despite its popularity, many citizens here in the USA have never even heard of the location nor even recognize its beautiful sights.

The earliest occupants of Canyon de Chelly were the Anasazi when they started building the structures some time around 300 A.D. After the Anasazi came the Navajo who still inhabit the region today.

The region of Canyon de Chelly is comprised of three canyons. Which includes Monument Canyon and Canyon del Muerto. The astounding beauty of the canyons and landscape is like standing in the middle of natural cathedral. There are plenty of beautiful sights and overlooks to be seen at these canyons in Chinle, Arizona. To see them, there are paved paths for vehicles. While other paths are more off-road. There are also guided tours by horse or Jeep. Along with choices of what 'tours' you want to take during your visit(s).

You can learn more about the canyon from this Canyon de Chelly National Monument book from 1997 or, if you're planning to visit, at https://www.nps.gov/cach/index.htm
