Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in or just neat postcards

Uncle Bob starts a new blog

I don’t travel far and I don’t travel wide(ly), but my buddy and I have traversed a lot of landscape in Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia and, to a lesser degree, Western North Carolina.  I take a lot of pictures, since my main interests are railroad tunnels and bridges.  I’ve also documented many of the places I’ve been.  This blog is here to share those.
First up: Grassy Trail Bald (or Grassy Ridge Bald) on the Roan Massif.  You park at Carver Gap, then walk up to Round Bald, then past Engine Gap (once, long ago, there was a machine here that hoisted timber that was efficiently clear cut on Tennessee side of the mountain over to the North Carolina side for processing) and up to Jane Bald.  You’ll see the Appalachian Trail here, but veer off and head up to Grassy Trail Bald.  6100′ up and on a reasonably clear day, the view is terrific.  I love that place.
