Taken at the Roan Mountain rhododendron garden, this was taken a few weeks too early to capture the plants in full bloom. The density and area of this natural rhododendron garden is staggering, if you come on a day where mist doesn’t limit your view.
The Rhododendrons growing around Roan Mountain are out of control.
It’s hard to adequately describe the view from the tops of the balds of Grassy Ridge. This particular vantage is from Jane Bald. While hiking along here it is immediately clear why people would want to hike the Appalachian trail.
