I’m certainly glad I didn’t fall in while trying to capture this.
Where two trails converge then diverge.
While I’m sure it was helped out by recent rainfall, it was worth braving the cold weather and avoiding the falling icicles (you can see some next to the falls if you look closely) to catch the falls in full form. I’ll definitely come back when it’s a bit easier to get down closer to the actual falls.
It’s awe inspiring to ponder the forces that worked to deposit these rocks on the top of a mountain.
Another shot of the Channels. I’ll definitely be going back to that spot.
Despite a failure properly plan the outing leading to a hike that was 3 times as long as anticipated, the trip to the Channels of Virginia near Abingdon were well worth the extra effort. I’ll definitely be coming back.
Given the weather lately the fall is looking pretty good.
The Appalachians aren’t my favorite mountain range but they’re in the top 5. The vistas from the AT are pretty spectacular.
You don’t have to pass through these rocks on the Appalachian trail in the Grayson Highlands, but its a lot more fun if you do.
