Took the time for an early morning jaunt out of Tremont up Panther Creek and down Lynn Camp Prong before returning to work.
One of the more beautiful and serene settings in the park, the Middle Prong Trail circles hikers right around the Lower Lynn Camp Prong Cascades.
After a good deal of ascending, I was grateful to arrive at Jakes Gap.
The Rosebay Rhododendron at the mid to upper elevations were adding beauty to the landscape much of the day.
The trip down Lynn Camp Prong was dotted with mud pits that required some fancy footwork on my part.
Looking back at the rickity old steel beam bridge over Thunderhead Prong.
