Default Autumn at Viking Mt.

The Viking Mountain area of Greene County TN is one of my favorite spots for autumn views. Had a chance to hike up there recently, on a cool foggy autumn morning.

Trail was sodden with rain, wet leaves and fog!

Not much hope of good views this time, so we took our time enjoying the autumnal details along the way.

Lichens were soft with all the moisture, and wild blueberry leaves were at peak color.

Bracken ferns were at peak autumn color, but many of the woodland ferns were still green (and catching falling leaves!)

We were "socked in" with heavy fog at Firescald Knob and at Blackstack Cliffs. We were about to give up on views and head back when a few sunbeams encouraged us to check out White Rock.

Fog parted just long enough for us to enjoy some fine views across this rich wild landscape.

Then fog moved back in, and we moved on back to the trailhead...
