Two Wheeled Adventure and Outdoor Photographer

Solitude, Beauty Spot Gap, Unaka Mountains, TN & NC

As the title implies, “Solitude” is the first thing that comes to my mind with this tree, which I know very well. It stands alone in an open meadow along the Appalachian Trail. I’ve been shooting in this area for over 10-years and I just keep coming back. It’s like an old friend that keeps revealing a new side every season.

  2. Jeff,

    This tree is the one partially cut out of the frame on the left of your photo. I also shot it from the opposite direction.

  3. I remember this lone tree in between Beauty Spot and Unaka on the AT.. I don’t think it’s the same one, unless it’s from a different angle?
