Default A Glimpse of Firescald Knob

Just a few scenes from a recent hike up on Firescald Knob in Greene County. Family & friends along who wanted to HIKE, not pause for multitudes of photos. And perfect weather for moving along. But we did have to stop at White Rock overlook to enjoy the autumnal tints.

Bracken ferns gave us a view of autumnal tints on a smaller scale.

And still a few butterflies out in the sunny places! Eastern Commas overwinter as adults, and can be seen out sunning even on rather cool days…

Speaking of cool, we had a surprise little snowstorm in the higher elevations not long before this hike. Of course, one of us had to stop to build a little snowman!

And we all stopped to admire this Oak's strange growth pattern. Life in the high places can be tough on the trees too.

But this was not a tough hike - just 5 miles of walking the ridgeline. Hope you enjoyed it, and that you'll share your comments & suggestions.
