Default Summer Views

Well, it's been a LONG time since I have had time to post here. Summers are always busy in our parks, and this has been an especially busy one. In addition to all the work at the home park, also had the opportunity to assist with several events and protection efforts at our newest Tennessee State Park - Rocky Fork. But I also had some time to take a few snapshots here and there. Am just now having some time to sort through some, and will post a sampling.

Enjoyed several great hikes in the Roan Highlands. Low clouds and high mountains are a great combination!

Even better when the sun breaks through from time to time.

Rosebays also thrive on Holston Mountain.

Mountain Laurels did well this year too - here's a nice bouquet up at Birchfield Lake in Rocky Fork.
