Along the Appalachian Trail




Nolichucky River



The view along the AT, facing east. Below is the Nolichucky River, with an old railroad bridge -- still in heavy use today.

Photographed along the Appalachian Trail, a little under a mile south from where the trail crosses the road/river by Uncle Johnny's Hostel.

Wild Blueberries


These I found along the AT right around the area where the overlook of the Nolichucky River was photographed.

Rocky ground, lots of pines (blueberries like the acrid soil) and enough sun from East and South to ripen these little gems before June even finished.

Very small compared to what you will see in a store, but OMG are they good. Just don't get too excited, there is not a huge patch of these blueberries on that part of the AT, they are scattered along the trail, mostly near the ridge running from .6 to .82 miles up the trail from the river.

Photographed this one on 06/16/2010.
