We went there when it was raining and it was incredible. Not many people and we got to see where the Appalachian and Wayah trails cross. I can now mark this off my bucket list.

Stunning. I didn’t want to like it, but I think I saw God. There are so many mountains! Also the road was lined with the precious little cabins that I’m sure were full of happy vampire families or children-eating witches. Enchanting! Beautiful views all around.

This was a spur of the moment trip up the mountain. And yes, it is quite a drive up a dirt road to get there. It was a well maintained road and easy to drive. The wildflowers were beautiful all along the route. It was not the ideal weather day, but the view was still breathtaking! I would love to go again on a clear day in the Fall. I imagine how spectacular it could be!

We drove up and it was foggy, rainy and windy, but after waiting about ten minutes the clouds cleared up a bit and the view was amazing. The pictures, as usual, don't do it full justice. Its a panoramic view of mountains all around. Both the Appalachian trail and the Bartram Trail take you up to this point and it is believed Bartram came up here during his travels in the 18th century.

Took friends on a Jeep ride to Wayah Bald and had picnic lunch. Gorgeous site. Windy, cool day. Met other friendly folks visiting there.
