Backpacking Black Balsam Knob & Tennent Mountain

After hiking Looking Glass Rock on Saturday, rafting the Nolichucky on Sunday, we struck out on the trail up Black Balsam Knob to find a campsite for Monday night. We pitched the tent just below the summit on the north side of the trail, and fortunately the leeward side of the mountain. We then hiked over to Tennent Mountain, where Hayes wanted to do some solo free climbing on the rock face on the west face of the mountain. After hanging out there for a while, we moved on to search for waterfalls along the Graveyard Fields trail.

Nice summit of two grand mountains. Incredible views from those balds!
