The classic view from Newfound Gap is into the Oconoluftee Valley, overlooking the road down into Cherokee. This view is off to the right, almost to the Southwest, across the ridges rather than down the valley. The lighting is more oblique as the sun settles to the right.

I was admiring the pattern in my foam cup – and decided the little foam cells reminded me of the cells in leaves – and would make an interesting subject.

Mingus Mill is a popular site on the Cherokee/Oconoluftee side of The Smokies, and the stream that powers it runs through some shady rhododendron growth. However, there was enough of a gap here for the strider-made ripples to reflect the mostly golden over story in a manner that reminds me of the brush strokes of the Impressionists.

Scarlet Paintbrush Wildflower Wallpaper – although, it turns out this is Harsh Paintbrush (Castillega hispida), distinguished by the hairy upper stem leaves and bracts. (You probably noticed that already.) Merge of two images taken with a Canon SX50 on Hurricane Ridge. (Thus the alpine species.)

I suppose with a title as long as that one, no further explanation is necessary. 🙂 This is the view looking out over the rocky slope in the previous image in the set “Hike to Mt LeConte via Alum Cave Bluff Trail.” The view is angled back along the trail a little bit, toward the Newfound Gap (which is, perhaps, just barely visible in this picture). The best I can make out from reading is that the Trout Branch is in the valley below – but it was the clouds that day which caught my attention.

  1. [https://www.flickr.com/photos/jlcummins_photography] I had no idea there were so many "paintbrush" species. However, I found a very specific flower ID book at the visitor center at Hurricane Ridge. "Alpine Flowers of the Olympic Mountains" by Douglas Houck and the University of Washington Herbarium. (Sub-title: 120 Wildflowers with GPS coordinates.) At $9 it seemed a bit pricey for a non-glossy stapled booklet, but the informational value makes it a treasured resource for flower ID in the Olympic Mountains. And it was in color, at least! It makes the distinctions between the species clear, and doesn’t bother mentioning species that are unlikely to show up in one’s alpine excursions.
