Looks like crinkled paper!

What the trees look like on top of the mountains

Can you guess which side of the tree is facing south and which is facing north?

The winter weather can be quite harsh up there.

The woods

The mountains

The sunshine!

Mount Rogers ~ the tallest mountain in Virginia

It’s the center hump (at least we think that’s it!). Doesn’t look like much, does it? It is, however, 5729 ft at the highest point. It’s just that everything around it is close to that so there is no contrast! I was probably pretty high up where I took the pictures.

Close-up so you can distignuish the humps
