Default Holston Mt Sunrise

Well, had another Monday off before all the craziness of July 4th week in the parks! Decided to head out EARLY to Holston Mt, and watch the sun rise from the fire tower. Was a lovely, but very windy and damp morning. Here are a few shots of the dawn and sunrise:

Damp early mornings are great for spiders, and for mushrooms too!

Rosebay Rhododendron is at its peak of bloom in the mountains now, and the damp places are full of the tendrils of bur cucumber:

We hiked on out to Flint Rock and beyond, but not too many more photos - just having too much fun hiking!
On the way back down, the last of the clouds cleared out, and the sun illuminated the wild sunflowers, and got the fritillaries out flying and nectaring again. (This one is on a Poke Milkweed - a species only found in the higher country)

First set is really eye catching! Good timing on that, no question.
