I love an excuse to promote my backyard David. Yep you missed the blooms and last of September - 2cd week of Oct for the leaves ~depending on elevation, Roan Mtn. Campground is 4000ish feet lower than Roan High Knob, so leaves will always be happening at one elevation or another in that 3 week period...and of course at 6208 feet by mid-Oct the leaves will be long done~ and I know you've seen this pic (non-Sony so won't imbed) but it shows winter is a spectacular time to visit Roan too-
Also for anyone foolish enough/hardy enough, every Jan-Feb we hike up to Roan High Knob and sleep in our hammocks=always at least a 2 foot snowpack to hang over.
That shot of everything snowcovered was taken 1/2-1/3 mile from where Travis got the stunning landscape shot.
I would love to have a snow shot of Roan like that!
Travis, we're on the MW hunt this weekend too....on the Blue Ridge at Doughton Park is where we're headed...listed as a dark spot on some sites....forecast looks crummy though but Stone Mtn. State Park NC is just 9ish miles away for other shots.
The Batis 18 arrived. Love the weight. Disappointed in that my copy does not stop at infinity focus. Still waiting on the Sharpstar.
I don't think any of the Batis lenses stop at Infinity...that rubber focus ring just keeps turning.
