A few of the trees are changing, but peak color is another week away.
On Tuesday I went back and hiked the section of trail to Sweedy Hollow. About a month ago I hiked the hollow and wrote a post about it. The camera batteries were low and I only got a few pictures before they went dead. This time the batteries were fresh but the shadows were long. I reached the hollow about 4:30 PM and found sunlight in short supply. Most of the pics were blurry from poor exposure with my basic point and shoot camera, but a few shots were OK. The weird rock formations in the hollow make it an intriguing place to visit.
This picture was taken standing underneath the largest overhang. It’s a very dark and damp place. I always think about all that mass of rock overhead.
I didn’t stay long. The sun was getting low and the trail was sometimes hard to see beneath the leaves.
