Another trip to Black Rock Mountain

I spent a wonderful day spent walking along the Tennessee Rock Trail at Black Rock Mountain in Rabun County with a couple of friends and collecting more photos of wildflowers.


Brenda and Donn were my guides and here they are at the overlook:








And, as you can see, I was quite tickled to have gotten to this point after an pretty long uphill climb!







The weather couldn't have been more perfect, breezy and cool with clouds flying by.







We spotted Yellow Trillium -- at last.



I can't find this lily in my books... perhaps the buds will open into a more full bloom later. Any help out there??



Brenda said this was Bloodroot, she thought.



Donn took lots of photos, too.



Many of these Trilliums, as well.



And Galax.



In addition to the wildflowers, several other things caught my attention... like rocks and lichens.




More adventures tomorrow!

Yes, Loree, Tennessee is indeed a beautiful state...but this Tennessee Rock Overlook is in Georgia!!
It's at Black Rock Mt. State Park in Rabun County, Georgia, near Mountain City. I'm sure one can see North Carolina from this point but not sure about Tennessee.
