Default Pond Mountain Autumnal Tints

Took a quick hike at Pond Mountain Wilderness recently, to enjoy the abundant rain & fog, and to check on the fall colors. Most of the hike was too wet for photography, but here are a few views from the overlook at Potato Top:

Biggest attraction at Pond Mt Wilderness is Laurel Falls - also called Laurel Fork Falls. Autumn is usually our driest season here in East Tennessee, and the our waterfalls are usually just trickles. But a week of record rainfall had Laurel Falls full and roaring.

This is an EASY (except for the short, steep side trail up Potato Top) 3 mile hike on a very well-maintained section of the Appalachian Trail. Hope you can hike it yourself sometime soon!

I mentioned in an earlier post that here in New England we are enjoying an unusually brilliant foliage season. It looks like the vibrant colors are also making their way to the southern Appalachians. Thanks for bringing us along on this delightful hike.

MtnMan- Glad you enjoyed the hike and the autumnal tints. Recent high winds and rains have knocked down most of our early color, but still plenty of late-season color remaining... Hope to see more of your New England foliage posted here soon!
