A very enjoyable tour, thank you.

Unfortunately my visits to your part of the world will have to remain virtual via your photographs.

First, your question on preferred view---the second.

All these images are beautiful, but my favorites are the Rhododendrons and the blueberries. I loved the attention to detail and the contrast with the backgrounds.

The final view when you break out at the top is spectacular. I knew I should have moved to East Tennessee when I wanted to about 30 years ago.... lol.

Well done

What a glorious view from the top. Makes me want to lace up my boots and head outdoors right now. I was especially taken with your shots of the mosses and lichens on the rocks as you approached the ridge top. All our wild blueberries are still green -- not surprisingly, you are several weeks ahead of us. (And, since blueberries need highly acid soil, am I correct in guessing that the ridgetop is composed of sandstone?)

It is a great set of images, I like the exposures and color saturation and sharpness, very nicely done. Of the two perspectives I prefer the 1st but it was a hard choice, I really like both

Phil - Thanks so much for your kind words!

Mike - Glad you enjoyed the "tour." It IS a bit of a trip from there to here...

Pboerger - You are too kind!

Rodney - And thanks for taking time to comment!

Mobil - You'll have to come visit sometime...

Paul - Thanks for the kind and specific comments! Next time you're visiting your Tennessee kinfolk, perhaps you can make a little side trip up to Northeast Tennessee.

MtnMan - So glad that my hike inspired yours! You are quite correct in your "geologic diagnosis." Mostly sandstone on this overlook. PS - we are already enjoying some ripe blueberries in some places here. A good & tasty crop this year.

Hans - Thanks for the helpful feedback!
