The profusion of the state flower was overwhelming!! But you can see pictures of them anywhere.
Photos just don't do it. When I came around the bend and saw the view below I stopped, got out, and spent the rest of the afternoon walking. I kept expecting Heidi to show up at any moment. Treasure Creek flows through on the far left side.
This magnificent specimen was its sole representative.
Lookout Mountain and Lake De Nolda in the afternoon light. (Friggin rain!!!)
It gets wild in the upper altitudes!!
