The mountain is appropriately named as there were rocks everywhere along the path and at the peak. Yes, this is part of the path.
A lot of the trees had little dirt to grow in, instead growing over the rocks.
Because the trees are not well rooted, microbursts tend to do a lot of damage. These were recently knocked over as the leaves were still green.
The trail is often a little vague but marked with yellow trail markers. They are a little hard to see in the fall when the leaves are starting to turn from green to yellow-green. Can you find the marker in the next picture? I really needed to find this one and it was a little difficult. You will probably need to biggie size the photo.
However it's all worth it when you get to the top. You can see just how hazy it was on Friday - this was before the COLD front moved in much later in the day.

One of those Mts is Bald Mt that I climbed in July.
I know you'll believe me - but proof again that it was me at the top.
And just to warn you, at some point the thinner air gets to a person.
There were only a few other people that climbed the mountain while I was there, including a couple guys I did
I know it's hard to see thru the haze and dirty windshield but this is Rocky Mt taken from Eagle Bay looking north. The rocks at the peak are just to the right of that barn like building in the middle of the photo.
This was taken Sunday on my way home, heading south out of Inlet. You can see the cars parked at the trail head and the rock formation dead center, which is the peak. Look how much the leaves changed in just 3 days! Sunshine helps too.
I'll have one more set of photos to post next week...
