Default Fog at Roan Mt

Had planned an early morning hike up Roan Mt recently, timed to catch the sunrise up at Grassy Ridge. Forecast the night before was for partly cloudy, but sometimes Roan Mt makes its own weather!

Not the best day for sunrise views, but any day at the Roan is a great day! This was a great day to see how the fog patterned the landscape, and gemmed each detail...

Hay-scented Fern (it really does smell like fresh hay!) thrives in these cool foggy places...

And White Wood Aster (a late summer or early autumn species) was already in full (wet) bloom.

But mostly it stayed thick fog and clouds. This is perfect waterfall weather, so we decided to head on over to nearby Pond Mountain Wilderness to check out one of our favorite waterfalls...

Laurel Falls is right along the Appalachian Trail, and both a popular destination for a short day hike, and a popular resting place for through hikers.

We found this tiny hiker (fence swift) among the rocks along the trail...
