Roan Mountain TN

Across the weekend of July 15th-17th my job brought me sorta close to Roan Mountain TN and I jumped at the chance to do an outstanding section of AT (for the fourth time). I parked at Mountain Harbor BnB and paid them to shuttle me to Greasy Creek Gap for a section hike.

Wildflowers along the way...


A one mile detour to Yellow Mountain overlook (cattle in distance)

After a brief micro-burst I was treated to this awesome rainbow at my Little Hump Mountain camp.

A nice view of Big Hump in the gloaming.

OK one more rainbow shot

Happy Trails!

Awesome photos. Thanks for sharing. I get out of the grind at least twice in the next month and can't wa it but this helps!

Great Stuff, Patman! 

Re: Roan Moutnain TN

Nice area. You had long second day 

Your photo skills are on point, having great subjects helps

Hey thanks all

Jeff, I appreciate that but good photo results for me depend entirely on great subjects, :)

I have learned to recognize when the light is favorable but that's about it.

what do you use to take your photos?


These were all taken with an old beat-up Nikon AW110. It's actually intended for use as an underwater camera. I bought it for hiking because it's waterproof and was pleasantly surprised to find that it takes good landscape photos. It has almost no user adjustability beyond preset modes though. Totally point and shoot.

What a wonderful feeling I get from these photos, thanks for capturing and sharing these moments Patman.

Excellent stuff, Patrick!!!

You pretty much always have some great shots..Point and shoot works great...Only got out about twice in July...Was hitting 100 degree's consistantly and we don't have 5000 ft to escape to...4000. yes...

Beautiful pictures, Patrick! I haven't been to Roan since 2014. I need to get back up there soon! I've got to make that detour over to Yellow Mountain.

PS, Are you back???

I live about 45 minutes from Roan. That is one of my favorite hikes on the AT. Glad you enjoyed it and come back when you get a chance.

I'm late to comment, but wanted to say how beautiful your pictures are, Patman! They're all lovely. Thanks for sharing them!
