Fog in the Western Valley

Wolfpen Mountain Fog
My walk this morning took me much higher up the mountain, where I could see the entire western valley between my house and Asheville. A fog has lingered over the Blue Ridge since before sunrise, and still has not burned off. The temperature was 46 at 8 a.m.. The view above shows a wide swath of Loblolly Pine, quite rare in the mountains. It’s a tree of the lower elevation Piedmont.

Roan Horsetop Fog
At 2,600 feet, Roan Horsetop Mountain reaches above the fog layers. Asheville is 24 miles due west. The cold weather is predicted to return on Monday. About time!
