Remote. Field.

  • Highest western-most mountain in the eastern U.S.  As you can see, the top (4005') is rather broad and flat.  I shot this at sunrise from approximately a half-mile away and 400' below the summit.  |  Cohutta Wilderness, N. Georgia Mountains  |  30 August 2013

  • This is at the north-northeasterly facing slope of Bald Mountain within a half-mile of the summit, elevation 4005'.  Mostly New York Fern (<i>Thelypteris noveboracensis</i>) here, but also saw Hay-scented (<i>Dennstaedtia punctilobula</i>), Cinnamon (<i>Osmundastrum cinnamomeum</i>), and Interrupted Ferns (<i>Osmunda claytoniana</i>) in this immediate area.  New York Ferns are common throughout the widerness  |  Tearbritches Trail, Cohutta Wilderness, N. Georgia Mountains  |  30 August 2013
