June is such a special time in the Roan. I took my friend up to Grassy Ridge Bald for the nice views and cooler weather. I’d never seen the Rhodos in bloom on the Roan before so it was quite an awesome time. An added bonus: we got to meet our Roan Naturalist on the trail! She was quite helpful and answered some questions we had about flora on the balds. The view in this pic is looking east into the NC side.
