Cherohala Skyway. With only a few cars and motorcycles on the road, we felt we were mostly alone with the mountains and the views! Over several days, we made numerous stops at the lookouts and we explored different hiking paths accessible off the Skyway.
Today, we checked out Hooper Bald, a stop along the Skyway, to see if there were any azalea or rhododendron in bloom. The trail to Hooper Bald is an easy quarter mile hike to the bald. At 5,290 feet, in early June we were a bit too early. Lots of buds but only a few blooms. We'll be back!
We continued on the Skyway to find the trailhead for a section of the South Fork Citico Trail
