On the forest floor.

Bloodroot, or Sanguinaria canadensis, is a perennial, herbaceous flowering plant native to eastern North America and found here in the mountains of North Carolina. Right now they are blooming and are noticeable on the forest floor. See more wild animal images here.



Rough Ridge in Spring

One of the most visited places to hike to on the Parkway.

Visiting the High Country? Visit the Parkway and Rough Ridge. You can see Grandfather Mountain, Linn Cove Viaduct, the Gorge and the Piedmont. This trailhead can be found at Milepost 302.8. The trail is moderate at best with a boardwalk about a third of the way up. You can reach the top in another half mile with an elevation of 4,773 feet. This trail is part of the Tanawha Trail. See more of the trail here.

Stone Mountain, NC

This part of my TrailTREK series I do every year. I am into year four with more to come.

Stone Mountain State Park is home to Stone Mountain, a cousin to Stone Mountain GA, and is a North Carolina state park in Alleghany and Wilkes Counties, North Carolina. It is 2,305 at the summit and Stone Mountain Trail has moderate climbs. Plenty of steps and well maintained. It is also the home of a four generation homestead called Hutchinson family's Homestead and the 200 foot Stone Mountain Falls. Gallery Here
