The pictures are pretty, but The Appalachian trail is not all neatly manicured paths through evergreen forests... there’s lots of rocks, roots, mud, and other rough- going... - It was actually a rough week for me, despite the figurative and literal highs (up to 6,200 feet and best views yet)... - Just shy of 1000 miles I was feeling pretty low, physically and mentally. Same thing happened on the PCT at same mileage. Out there my theory was “post-Sierra blues”... best and highest part of trail behind me, and while 1000 miles should be an encouraging milestone, when you subtract 1000 from 2650 and realize you have 1650 miles to go, it’s a little demoralizing when you think how long and hard the 1000 were ... - Out east here on the AT I’m not sure what it is..I do think some physical fatigue has accumulated ... and I got a little sick too .... - I was worried I might have giardia or something but I realized it was just a bad cheeseburger ... not full blown food poisoning but definitely got a little sick from a bad meal... - I actually lost my taste for burgers (which is a damn shame), and lost appetite in general ... two days of not being able to eat much while still out there hiking can make your body weight plummet ... depressing ... I hate getting too skinny... - Well it passed... made it to Erwin then hopped into Johnson city to zero rest relax eat and go to gym .... - Feeling better. Onward to hot springs and the great smokies ... - In an upcoming post I’ll share, honestly, some of the other sh*tty stuff we go through out here ... it’s fun to share the high points / “highlight reel”, but this is really hard and there are as many lows as highs .. catch you later - - #appalachiantrials #roanmountain #roanhighlands #at2019 #at2019thruhike #appalachiantrail2019 #whiteblaze #georgiatomaine #atsobo #atflipflop #atflipflop2019 #tennessehiking #hikingadventures #appalachiantrail 6 days ago by @meatheadhikes

Here’s another video taken while hiking down the southbound part of hump mountain... blue skies and views for miles all the way around, except to the south, thick fog / clouds with thunderstorm looming, made for amazing contrast ... made it to camp / tentsite before it started coming down .... high n dry! 👍👍⛱⛱ - #appalachiantrail #roanmountain #roanhighlands #at2019 #at2019thruhike #appalachiantrail2019 #whiteblaze #georgiatomaine #atsobo #atflipflop #atflipflop2019 #tennessehiking #hikingadventures 6 days ago by @meatheadhikes

We ran down the mountain as much as Lucy would keep up to escape getting rained on. But at the bottom, we, like Roan Mountain, were engulfed in a thick white cloud that saved us her rain. #balds #roundbald #janebald #grassyridgebald #roanmountain #roanhighlands #appalachiantrail #appalachianmountains #followmetotennessee #tennessee 1 week ago by @youareyouerthanyou
This hike takes you first to around Bald (elevation 5,826 feet), then to Jane Bald (elevation 5,820 feet ), and finally to Grassy Ridge Bald (elevation 6,189 feet). While the former two balds straddle both North Carolina and Tennessee, Grassy Ridge calls the state that I have grown so utterly fond of home: North Carolina #balds #roundbald #janebald #grassyridgebald #roanmountain #roanhighlands #appalachiantrail #appalachianmountains #abetterplacetobe #mynorthcarolina #northcarolina 1 week ago by @youareyouerthanyou
Final pictures from the Roan Mountain trip. We had this amazing break in the weather between storms just after dark that gave us enough time to walk down to the open meadows of Bradley Gap and watch the huge, brilliant waxing crescent moon set over Little Hump Mountain, and watch 5-6 massive fireworks shows happening simultaneously out on the horizon. There was so much going on at once—beautiful distant lightning, a beautiful meteor sighting, the fireworks, the moonset—and we’d been a ways into the traditional post dinner single malt scotch flask. I’m kind of glad I didn’t bother futzing with my camera during all that, because I was able to be more fully present in the moment, and I never would have done any of it justice. After Brandon went to bed, I went back out to try and maybe get a Milky Way photo. After the moon went down, the MW was a brilliant band in the eastern sky, clearly and starkly visible to the naked eye among the millions of tiny stars. No sooner than I got set up, the clouds from the next thunderstorm started to roll across. Here’s what I got as I drunkenly tried to take advantage of the last few minutes of clear sky. You can see the cloud cover moving in from the right. I was a little surprised that the couple of lightning flashes that happened during the long exposure didn’t wash the stars out more. #hikenc #nc100miles #hikingaddict #hikingadventures #backpacknc #backcountrycamping #atsectionhike #appalachiantrail #roanhighlands #roanmountain #roanbalds #grassybalds #pisgahnationalforest #carversgap #hiketennessee #easttennessee #littlehumpmountain #bradleygap #astrophotography #amateurastrophotography #milkywaychasers #milkywayphotography #nikond3500 #nikkor18_55 #nikond3500photography #myblueridge #828isgreat 1 week ago by @lando_the_magnificent

"How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains" - John Muir 1 week ago by @bradb_52
Mountain tops are of my favorite place to be with you. #eyesbarelyopen #balds #roundbald #janebald #grassyridgebald #roanmountain #roanhighlands #appalachiantrail #appalachianmountains #followmetotennessee #tennessee 1 week ago by @youareyouerthanyou
Balds are not so common, and therefore, we don’t usually hike them, so it was a different hike being able to see exactly where we were going and exactly where we’d go back. Having that knowledge reduces any anxiety I have about hiking: enough water? too hot? getting burnt? enough snacks? tiring? ticks? So, thank you Roan Highlands for going prematurely bald. This part of Roan Mountain is the longest stretch of grassy bald in the Appalachian Mountains—about 7 miles of balds. The southern portion of the Appalachian Mountains have two types of balds: grassy and heath. Grassy balds are simply areas where grass and shrubs, instead of trees, grow due to it being too warm at the summit for alpines to grow. #balds #roundbald #janebald #grassyridgebald #roanmountain #roanhighlands #appalachiantrail #appalachianmountains #followmetotennessee #tennessee 1 week ago by @youareyouerthanyou

I was so excited about our final bald summit, Hump Mountain. From the neighboring slope of Little Hump Mountain the previous evening it looked so beautiful, and promised incredible views—probably the most spectacular of the entire trip. The closest thing to a disappointment on this hike—and I hesitate to use that word given how much other incredible, beautiful stuff we saw—was that dense fog covered Hump Mountain for our entire climb up and back down. It was certainly a cool-looking, eerie scene, but I now feel committed to go back and see what this peak has to offer in clear weather. #hikenc #nc100miles #hikingaddict #hikingadventures #backpacknc #backcountrycamping #atsectionhike #appalachiantrail #roanhighlands #roanmountain #roanbalds #grassybalds #pisgahnationalforest #carversgap #hiketennessee #easttennessee #hikingbuddy #hikingbuddies #humpmountain #foggymountain #nobadweather #828isgreat #nikond3500 #nikkor18_55 #nikond3500photography 1 week ago by @lando_the_magnificent

I was so excited about our final bald summit, Hump Mountain. From the neighboring slope of Little Hump Mountain the previous evening it looked so beautiful, and promised incredible views—probably the most spectacular of the entire trip.

Miscellaneous great views from the first half of our Roan Highlands AT section hike. Some from the balds near Carver’s Gap, some from the beautiful valley of Yellow Mountain Gap where the Overmountain Victory Trail intersects the AT. If you look closely you can see the red barn of the Overmountain Shelter near the edge of the meadow in the bottom right of one of these pictures. #hikenc #nc100miles #hikingaddict #hikingadventures #backpacknc #backcountrycamping #atsectionhike #appalachiantrail #roanhighlands #roanmountain #roanbalds #grassybalds #pisgahnationalforest #carversgap #hiketennessee #easttennessee #overmountainshelter #828isgreat #yellowmountaingap #grassyridgebald #nikond3500 #nikkor70_300 #nikkor18_55 1 week ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Flora from the trip. Anybody know what the second red flower is? I know the first is Gray’s lily because there were signs near the day hiking area reminding folks not to touch them for fear of spreading a fungal disease. The second lily I’ve been informed is Turk’s Cap lily. And I have no idea what the pretty fungus on the tree is 🤷‍♂️. #liliumgrayi #grayslily #liliumsuperbum #turkscaplily #wildflowers #rareflowers #flowerphotography #flowercloseup #nikond3500 #nikkor70_300 #nikond3500photography #appalachianbalds #hikenc #nc100miles #hikingaddict #hikingadventures #backpacknc #backcountrycamping #atsectionhike #appalachiantrail #roanhighlands #roanmountain #roanbalds #grassybalds #pisgahnationalforest #mountainharbourhostel #carversgap #hiketennessee #easttennessee 1 week ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Fauna from the trip. This deer just marched her way into our campsite as we were getting set up. I can only assume the local population is extremely acclimated to people because of the popularity of this section of the AT. She made a couple of passes through camp pretty quickly, then disappeared before I could whip the Nikon out, so these quick, blurry phone shots are the only ones I caught of her. I did capture a trail bunny and some super thirsty wasps with my camera, though. The rabbit looked a lil differently colored than the ones at home, and it was on a 5,000’ mountain, so I’m hoping it was the rarer Appalachian Cottontail species. #wildlifeencounters #ncwildlife #appalachiancottontail #sylvilagusobscurus #whitetaildeer #whitetaileddeer #odocoileusvirginianus #hikenc #nc100miles #hikingaddict #hikingadventures #backpacknc #backcountrycamping #atsectionhike #appalachiantrail #roanhighlands #roanmountain #roanbalds #grassybalds #pisgahnationalforest #carversgap #hiketennessee #easttennessee 1 week ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Had an incredible experience hiking/backpacking one of the most spectacular sections of the AT with the great @brandobama this weekend—from Carver’s Gap to US 19E. Got wildly varying estimates of distance from various devices, apps and maps, so we’ll just say I’m confident it was at the very least a 14 miler. We utilized the overnight parking and shuttle services from Mountain Harbour Hostel and had a very good experience with that. They have a very nice little place set up there. We saw wildlife, the full gamut of mountain weather, some of the most dramatic scenery I’ve ever seen, incredible wildflowers, a spectacular waxing crescent moonset, a shooting star, the Milky Way, a brilliant rainbow, and several huge professional fireworks shows in the distance from the comfort of a 5,000’+ mountaintop meadow. So many pictures to follow 😅 #hikenc #nc100miles #hikingaddict #hikingadventures #backpacknc #backcountrycamping #atsectionhike #appalachiantrail #roanhighlands #roanmountain #roanbalds #grassybalds #pisgahnationalforest #hikingbuddies #mountainharbourhostel #carversgap #hiketennessee #easttennessee 1 week ago by @lando_the_magnificent

What an end to an amazing day hiking the Appalachian trail in the Roan Highlands. I love watching those last few minutes when the sun begins to drop below the horizon. It is a powerful and humbling thing to watch. #landscapephotomag #landscape #ourstate #outdoorphotomag #appalachiantrail #roanhighlands #blueridgeoutdoors #blueridgemoments #yourshotphotographer #earthfocus #hiking #ashevilletrails #ncoutdoor_inc #ncmountains #blueridgemountains #mountains #sunset #sun #appalachian_explorers #earthfocus 1 week ago by @mwwphotography

I am officially off the trail, and there are three things I learned while hiking across the #RoanHighlands : First, is that being alone and hardly speaking to or seeing anyone for several days is good. It gives you time to reflect inwardly about your life, your relationships, your past, and your future. It gives you time to process who you are, and who you want to be. Life can be busy and full of distractions, and with no one to talk to and very limited cell phone reception, you have the opportunity to process a lot of things you can easily put off otherwise. Second, as much as I enjoy being completely alone, sometimes you can get into your own head. After days of no real conversation, going to bed alone and waking up alone, you really begin to miss the people in your life, and the ordinary conversations and time together that you easily take for granted. Eating every meal in a different place, sleeping in a different space every night, and seeing beautiful scenery that no picture can capture, makes you realize that we are wired for deep relationships that we can, and do, take for granted. It is important to share deep connections with the people you love and care for, and we need to make time for that. Third, I am ready to start planning another hike. It is the healthiest thing mentally and physically and spiritually that I can do for myself. There is nothing like the call of the wild and the mountains, and I will always be connected to God in a special way while there #hikeon #optoutside #reflections 1 week ago by @richardhodges73

I am still going through photos from my hike through the Roan Highlands a few weeks ago and i am excited to share some more captures with everyone. This was such a fun hike... thinking I may need to do it again this year. This is another shot from a great sunrise up on Grassy ridge. You can make out the few remaining rhododendron blooms in the bottom of the frame. I didn't catch the blooms this year but there is always beauty at Roan. #earthpix #landscapephotomag #landscape #outdoorphotomag #ncoutdoor_inc #ncmountains #roanmountain #roanhighlands #grassyridgebald #appalachiantrail #blueridgemountains #blueridgeoutdoors #blueridgemoments #wnc #appalachian_explorers #hiking #visitnc #appalachianmountains #sunrise #mountains 2 weeks ago by @mwwphotography

This is one of my favorite views, of course the layers of mountains in all directions help but there’s something about seeing that small line you walked in the distance with small dots of other people coming & going. There’s a lot of disarray going on in a handful of family, friends, and coworkers lives right now. Life is unpredictable & life is short. The most inexplicable calling, tugging, and yearning on my heart is to thru hike. I don’t understand it, it’s crazy & most people probably don’t get that. I really wanted to start with the PCT, but the AT would be a lot more logistical since I live beside it so that’s where I’d like to start. For some reason I see myself next year- my 30th year doing this. I have a family, fresh mortgage, job, etc... so idk how but I’m stubborn, believe in the power of throwing words out into the universe. I had kids really young so I’ll be 40 when they turn 18- but I’m in my absolute physical prime right now and can’t imagine if something happened to my mobility in the meantime and this becomes a dream that dies with me. A lot can happen in 10 years if God keeps me around 10 more years. My worst fear is my dreams dying when I do. #appalachiantrail #roanmountain #roanhighlands #womenwhohike #easttennessee #mountains #hiking #outdoors #liveyouradventure #dreams #outdoorwomen #liveoutdoors #takeahike #outdoorculture #mountaintop 2 weeks ago by @appalachianmeg

Almost a year ago I submitted an app for a volunteer moderator position on the All Women, All Trails & All Women, Appalachian Trail Facebook Groups. I heard back last week and interviewed/ got it today! I’m really excited for this opportunity, all the badass women I’m gonna get to talk to & meet, and she’s even mentioned the possibilities of hosting events & workshops in my area since the AT is in my backyard.

When I work up these photos I’m always thinking to myself, “what do I want to say with this frame?” When it comes to Roan Mountain, my recurring thought is simply “I wish I were there right now.” Thank you @appexposures and @thesalliegator for the company on this evening. And yeah, I wish I was walking the trails up and over the mountain now 😄. #roanhighlands #roanmountainstatepark #flameazalea #northcarolina #celebratingnc #appalachiantrail #southernappalachianmountains #blueridgemountains 2 weeks ago by @markvandykephoto
