This is Stone Mountain NC. The family and I went for a great day of hiking last summer and there was plenty for a photographic hack such as myself to take pictures of. Its really amazing because it is clear that the soil simply slid off the mountainside to create a large meadow below. The remaining vegetation has to find small cracks and ledges to support itself. I thought there was something rather defiant about this little tree to choose this particular perch to call home.
