Default Early Spring on Holston Mt

A quick run up Holston Mountain reminded me how much more slowly spring returns to the higher elevations. While the lower valleys were already green and blooming, Holston Mountain was just showing its first flush of green.

Down in the valleys, the Red Maples are already ripening their "helicopter seeds." But up on Holston, they're just starting to bloom, and to tint the hills with red.

Only the earliest spring wildflowers are budding out up on Holston Mountain, like this Golden Ragwort. It will be full of bright yellow blooms soon.

Plenty of spring rain fills all the streams that drain Holston Mountain. Here's one of the many small waterfalls down near the base of the mountain.

Will be returning to Holston Mt soon, to check on some rare orchids, and to enjoy a more spring-like view. Hope you enjoyed the quick tour!
