Max Patch July 2012

Warm days, arrived at Max Patch with Sky to walk at 6:30 am, and it was already 68 degrees
The sun was well up when we got to the top but it was beautiful still

Good girl Sky for checking in!

Morning ground fog is always amazing here, not only beautiful, but a great way to observe air currents and how it might effect scent

Someone placed a flag on one of the markers for the AT (Appalachian Trail), that goes across the top of Max Patch. From here you are looking into the TN mountains as well as NC.

Great rock for photo op!

Coming out of one of my all time favorite rhoddedendron tunnels, something has caught Sky's attention. She also flushed a wild turkey on this morning's walk.
Coming out of the forest, passed a wagon train with at least 8 wagons and some riders on horseback. There is really no telling where this group started from. I didn't get the opportunity to talk to them, but all the folks smiled and waved and we wished each other a good morning!

Nice looking mule team!

Absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to visit Max Patch again and hope to have the same beautiful views and amazing lighting. We'll have to get up at the crack of dawn but it will be worth it!
