The Spring flowers that have bloomed and faded down in the valleys and back in the Franklin area are in full bloom up here. As you ascend the mountain it is like driving back in time to visit Spring. Flame Azalea, Columbine, Mountain Laurel are just a few delicacies for the eyes. The White Azalea is a rare flower but abundant on this mountain top and the scent of it is on the breeze. Hiking the Appalachian Trail can continue by following the stepping stones a few feet from here.

Tony,

It is quite a drive up to the mountain top or you can catch it on the Appalachian Trail, a long, long hike. It is wonderful! You are welcome.

Cheers, Jean
