Here's to the land of the long leaf pine.....
In reply to FrankS009, Feb 3, 2014

Although I reside in central North Carolina (near the capitol - Raleigh, NC) - these 3 photos reflect the vastness and flexibility in living in this gorgeous state.

Since I live in the central part of the state, all I have to do is travel 1 1/2 - 2 hours east and I then have access to some of the most gorgeous beaches on the east coast of the USA:

And a view from the central part of the state - the Capitol Building, Raleigh, NC:

Olympus E-3 with 12-60 lens, ISO 400, RAW, AWB, Aperture Priority Mode

And traveling just 3 hours to the west, you run into some of the most gorgeous (and highest) mountains along the east coast of the USA! Yes, North Carolina seemingly has it all and that's why more and more folks are moving here from the North and Northeastern parts of the US.

And the official toast to the state of North Carolina:

Here's to the land of the long leaf pine,

The summer land where the sun doth shine,

Where the weak grow strong and the strong grow great,

Here's to 'Down Home,' the Old North State!

Here's to the land of the cotton bloom white,

Where the scuppernong perfumes the breeze at night,

Where the soft Southern moss and jessamine mate,

'Neath the murmuring pines of the Old North State!

Here's to the land where the galax grows,

Where the rhododendron's rosette glows,

Where soars Mount Mitchell's summit great,

In the 'Land of the Sky,' in the Old North State!

Here's to the land where maidens are fair,

Where friends are true and cold hearts rare,

The near land, the dear land, whatever fate,

The blest land, the best land, the Old North State!
