Since we live in Raleigh and Mike lives in the NC mountains, our paths cross just a few times a year. One is usually the Grayson Highlands camping trip. This is where this image was taken. In the past few years, Mike got married and had his first child. A musician and teacher is now a father. Mike has always loved the outdoors especially hiking, camping and biking. I always new that Mike would be a great father. Though it took longer than he probably wanted it to, he has truly embraced fatherhood. I love Mike’s ruggedness contrasting the soft safe innocence of his son Marshall in this shot so I had to share it.
