Default A few shots from Holston Mt

Have been away from electronics for the past two weeks (busy with park work and with our Christmas bicycle project). But did enjoy some time out on the trail at Holston Mt on a bright late-autumn day...

Some fine views from the Holston Tower of the leafless hills and slight mist...

These late-autumn woods seem empty of life, but fat hickory buds hold promise for the future...

Holston Mountain's a rocky landscape, with many tiny lives hidden in the crannies...

Holston Mt is drained by many small streams, made rather full these days by recent heavy rains...

Thanks to some very abrupt slopes and resistant sandstones, many of these streams are "decorated" by small waterfalls...

Looks like a great day for a late season hike, Mole. Thanks for bringing us along.

Nice hike shots. Love the starburst you captured of the Sun.

I think I remember going over or by the Holston River somewhere between Southern Virginia and Bristol, TN and immediately thought of your frequent hikes on this mountain.

MtnMan - glad you enjoyed the trip. Holston Mt is a great place for a hike at any time - plenty of different trails, diverse landscapes, richness of life...

Lou - Starburst was easy (DA 15 does it by itself...). When you crossed the Holston River on I-81 south of Bristol, you were VERY CLOSE to my home park - you could have dropped a pebble on one of our mountain bike trails.
