This was the last of several amazing balds on a clear and beautiful day in the Roans.
Crossed on section hike of the Roan Highlands. Awesome views! Truly magical trip.
Climbed Hump from AT trailhead near Elk Park, NC. Absolutely pristine hike through the woods to the treeline. Although the trail gained over 2000 ft in elev. it was gradual & pleasant. The summit views are spectacular on a clear/semi-clear day.
Great views and longhorn cattle on the mountain.
Went up from little hump in the pre-dawn hours, expecting an awesome sunrise. Instead, nothing but fog / drizzle. It was very surreal, esp. when I started hearing cows in the darkness and light of headlamp.
Very cold and windy. Lots of cows.
Never have found the spring in all my trips to the top.
The sunshine turned the long grass gold.
