In the autumn of 2015 we relocated to western North Carolina. We live in a forest in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains. Our elevation is just over 3000 feet. While I no longer photograph cultivated, tropical orchids, I have, to date, identified and photographed a dozen native orchid species as well as mushrooms and any other thing of interest I find in our thousand-acre community. Life is good.

Although it is unlikely I will be posting any new AOS award photography here I am committed to continue hosting the Orchid Photo Page as an educational and reference resource. And I will share any new adventures that I encounter.
