Roan Loop  Sucess!

A great early spring hike. Did it as part of a 12-mile "loop" along with Roan High Bluff and Grassy Ridge Bald. The trail was a bit tricky with a lot of ice on the trail. In wet weather much of the trail up from Carvers Gap doubles as a small stream, which when I went was frozen. There was also a small bit of snow in places near the summit from the 12"+ we had the week before. A nice hike, I love the northern feel of this mountain.

Cloudland  Sucess!

This is the third time I've been on the Roan's Knob. I suspect I will be back again... Cheers to cloudland!

Oct 2010: Hiked up again for the 2nd time this year. Beautiful windy, sunny fall day.

It was a very cold day and night (10 degrees at night) and windy. Made the summit and spent the night in the shelter. The shelter was very drafty and it snowed that night. Other than that, the hike was great. Wish there were more views.

It was a warm hazy early June day in the East. The Rhododendrons above 4,000 ft were in blume and the crowds did not seems to be too terribly thick.

We had the shelter and the summit to ourselves.

Went on to climb Roan High Bluff before returning.
