Blue Ridge Mountain, Pat Mullen Mountain & Porter Mountain

Blue Ridge Mountain as viewed from Porter Mountain Road

Approaching the top

The top is heavily wooded

The blank benchmark. Someone etched in a number on it

This is from Porter Mountain

Pat Mullen Mountain is just a boring forested hill, this image taken from Porter Mountain

Sign at the start

Sign at the junction to the spur trail

Nice trail and forest up here

The general top

This rock might be the highest point

Or maybe this one

Impressive juniper!

Gnomes and other little trinkets

Porter Mountain and its ugly gravel mine

Parked at the 7,400-foot level

Towers up here, the highest point up ahead

The highest actual point, for what it's worth

More towers looking south. The image does not do this justice. There were lots of towers and it was so impressive

View of Blue Ridge Mountain from the road

Walking back to the gate

The gravel scar and part of the road
