Max Patch Mountain, Hot Springs, North Carolina

Max Patch

Max Patch is a "bald" mountain top with a 360 degree view that extends from North Carolina to Tennessee and from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to Mount Mitchell and all around. It is maintained as a "bald" by the United States Forest Service. I am told there are Trillium growing here and putting on fruit now but, I did not see any this day.

Blue Ridge Parkway Storm

Yesterday it stormed when we were on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Then last night it rained and rained and rained. Today would be a great day to go see waterfalls in the tri-states of Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
