Nice poplar

Post by jamesrobertsmith » Sun Jun 27, 2010 5:50 pm

I went hiking down to Crabtree Falls today. Off the Parkway. Slightly north of Mount Mitchell area. There was a LOT of ice and heavy snow damage to the forests in that part of the mountains. Thus, the forests appeared to be more open than normal. This will change, I assume, over the next few years with a proliferation of new growth taking advantage of all of that sunlight.

However, for now, you can really see through the woods and notice a lot of things that would have been hidden or obscured before. As I was hiking down to the falls, about 1/3 of a mile from the parking lot, I noticed a relatively impressive tree to the left of the trail. So I hiked over to it to get a photo. Nothing to scream about, but I thought it was worth taking some photos that I could stitch together:

I didn't have any way to take a measurement. It was just a nice tree in a fairly decent grove of trees.
