Default Fogged In At Holston Mt

Took an early morning hike up Holston Mt recently. Goal was to get to the top of the fire tower in time to watch the sunrise. But conditions were not quite ideal for viewing the dawn!

Although we could not see the sunrise, we could see some fine foggy views of the surrounding peaks and valleys.

We continued on along the crest of Holston Mt for several miles, enjoying the rich foggy forests...

And the bright red Jack-In-The Pulpit fruits. Pretty to look at, but NOT good (for humans) to consume!

By the time we got to Flint Rock, the fog was evaporating and the autumnal views were much clearer.

Flint Rock holds a high elevation bog - where the Cinnamon Ferns and Bracken Ferns were fading to gold...

And the Sassafras and Black Gum trees and Cat Briar vines were also rich in fall color.

t's a fine little hike, less than 9 miles of rolling ridges and rich natural diversity. Hope you enjoyed the trip, and that you'll share your comments & critique!
