Roan Highlands

It’s said to be one of the nicest parts of the AT. With spectacular views from the tops of the balds along this section of the trail, I can see why.

Watauga Dam, Front and Back

It’s hard to tell from looking at the lake, even with the plaque in front of you, just how massive the Watauga Dam is… until you turn around. It’s actually pretty disorienting to look at what looks like a normal lake, then turn around and see the valley that the lake used to be. And when you look down the slope at the valley floor below you really start to understand how deep the lake really is.
