North Carolina Vacation, October 2015

This was the first trail that we hiked, the
Buckhorn Gap Trail. It paralleled, then
crossed Avery Creek.

This was our first vacation to enjoy the spectacle of the fall

We hiked the short but steep trail to the top of Devil's
Courthouse. This is the view from the summit.

Looking Glass Falls is, for good reason, one
of  the most photographed waterfalls in the
region. It is adjacent to US 76 highway, only
9 miles north of Brevard, NC.

Clayton, Georgia.

Denton Branch ... what a sweet mountain stream!

  1. Lovely, as always, Bob. But then, how can you miss with such beautiful fall color in stream/falls-laden mountains!
