Rhododendron Garden Adventure

Sunday, July 07, 2013

My brother, Scott and I went to the rhododendron gardens on Roan Mountain twice. The first time we went with our friends Shawn and Rhonda and also went to the rhododendron festival. The second time we went by ourselves. Both times we walked on the trails. Our first visit with our friends was a nice clear day but the second we walked in the clouds.

This is the view from the overlook. Roan mountain is partly in Tennessee and partly in North Carolina. I believe where we were was in Tennessee.

This are my walking buddies and best friends. My brother Scott by the tree, Rhonda and Shawn.

This is my brother Scott and me.

catawba rhododendron blossom.

this is from the second trip when they were in full bloom. Our first trip it was just random blooms.

more blooms. The bushes were huge!

I just loved this tree, all moss covered.

this is the same view at the overlook but blocked by clouds.

This is one of the older trails we took. The newer ones are all concrete.

We had a great time, both trips. I hope you enjoyed this blog.
