Craggy Gardens - Blue Ridge Parkway, June 2017Blooms with a view

The Catawba Rhododendrons near Craggy Gardens on the Blue Ridge Parkway are in full bloom.  A friend and I visited the area today and were somewhat surprised how many blooms there were.  At the Craggy Pinnacle Trail, the blooms are just starting to come out but we did find some nice ones on the trail for isolated photos.  We proceeded north and then found many mature blooms.  Near Mt. Mitchell the blooms were still pretty full but we did notice some plants were just starting to bud out.  They need another 3-4 days.  If you want to enjoy the blooms, head up there soon or you may miss them.  Happy shooting!
