I visited the Smoky Mountains this year in September. My friends had reserved a cabin in the Deep Creek area. This is a one minute sliver of my first morning there. Other than the numerous chirps and squeaks of birds and squirrels, you should be able to hear nuts falling incessantly on the gravel around me.

The video is a part of the 1 Minute project that Vimeo started. Below is a description from the project page:

With the chaos of everyday life consuming our senses, it is nice to sit back and enjoy moments and experiences that are often overlooked. This project aims to study the forgotten moments and times in life that we often pass by without acknowledging.
The rules:
-Video must be exactly one minute long
-No camera movement (no panning, tilting, etc)
-No editing whatsoever
-Use original sound
-Tag with '1 minute'
-Have fun
