A friend emailed me this photo. He says it was taken by a photographer named Albert Roth back in the early 30s or late 20s. Shows what Charlies Bunion and the Sawteeth looked like when they were completely and utterly denuded of tree cover by timber operations and fires. Trees soften the vertical aspect of the Appalachians and make them look less like mountains to those hikers and climbers accustomed to treeless slopes.
