Brief Directions

Bakersville, NC to Carver's Gap, TN. Hike the Appalachian Trail over Round Bald, Engine Gap, and Janes Bald to a spur trail to Grassy Bald.

Description

This particular composition is gained by hiking to the end of Grassy Ridge, a spur trail off of the Appalachian Trail near Carver's Gap, Tennessee, and facing West away from the rising sun. The lighting in the morning hours is extremely good with a rear-side orientation that places soft light in all the right places and really shows great definition on the distant mountain ridges and valleys. After a terribly cold and soggy evening of camping on the balds, it was a real pleasure to see the sun come out and dry things up a bit!
