Another view from our campsite in Middle Prong Wilderness.

Fascinating place, I didn't know about this part of the Blue Ridge. It reminds me a bit of the Dolly Sods area in WV. Have to study up about it.

Well, even more reason it's familiar. You're out in the back country adjacent to my favorite part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. I've done a lot of shooting there with my banquet cameras (which don't take well to hiking into the woods) especially from the section that looks out to the Cowee Mountains.

I didn't know you wandered this far south. My wife has camped quite a bit in this area and in the Shining Rock Wilderness, which is to the east of Middle Prong. I'm a backpacking newbie, so this was my first visit to this part of the world. Unfortunately, we didn't take a compass, so we're not exactly sure where we were. However, Michelle claims that the next mountain over was Mount Hardy. And we hiked in on the NC Mountains to Sea trail.
