Mountain

The weather down south has been unseasonably warm lately. I took advantage and headed up to the Blue Ridge Parkway recently. The trail we were after was gated shut, but we did find a pathway up to the top of Black Balsam Knob. Very cool place – a 6000+ foot mountain completely covered in grass and small shrubs.
