If you plan to visit Western NC, please check beforehand to see if the area is safe following the recent flooding. Officials have closed some sections of Pisgah National Forest (including Forest Heritage Scenic Byway and Blue Ridge Parkway stops) to keep visitors out of danger. Please respect signage and local guidance.
In an effort to help North Carolina-based readers like you feel more connected, we’ve thought up something fun called “My North Carolina Window.” Through this collection of photo submissions, we hope you get to see some new spots throughout our state and come away inspired to get out there and do more exploring when able.
My North Carolina Window: Community Photo Submissions
Because looking out your own window or deep into the eyes of your partner can get boring, we wanted to give you a chance to share photos from your view in North Carolina.
North Carolina Photo Submissions
Note: North Carolina photo submissions are ordered by when they were sent into us.
Megan from Lillington, Harnett County shares this adorable photo of Rio the river pup as she sits at her office porch door with the Cape Fear River behind her. Talk about an amazing co-worker!
Looking out of his Durham window, Jim captures this scene from his backyard condo as one of the many beautiful birds that pass by his feeder.
Cynthia of Bryson City shares her beautiful view of Fontana Lake!
“Funny backstory to this guest submission. Early in the morning on my last day in Cleveland County, I tried to truck it up Crowder’s Mountain to sunrise (pro tip- don’t. The sun doesn’t rise on that side!) But while at the top trying to catch my breath I met this incredible woman who was giving everyone she saw words of encouragement. She was so easy to talk to and just a person who was infectious.”
Melissa lives in Kingstown and runs an animal rescue called Marino Tails. If you are looking for an animal who has been given more love than you could imagine to be your fur-ever friend, check out her Facebook Page!
In the meantime, fall in love with her beautiful backyard!

Share Your North Carolina Photo Submissions
Take a photo of North Carolina from your house, street, or immediate area as many of us are currently in a shelter-in-place situation. Bonus points if there’s a cool view from yours. We’re asking that you NOT make a special trip for this.

The form to submit your photo is located just below.
Props to Jeremy from Discover the Burgh for sharing the idea for this with us and for encouraging us to do the same here in North Carolina.
