Friday Fences - Bent Mountain

Bent Mountain, Roanoke County (click on photo to enlarge)

I can't remember if I told you that on Father's Day we went hiking out at Bottom Creek Gorge. Such a pretty place and it also has the second highest waterfall in Virginia. There are 3 different trails to take to the falls. We took the red trail there and the yellow back. There are old abandoned structures and cemeteries throughout, evidence of the early settlers from the late 17th through the 18 centuries. I was really looking forward to seeing some of the old houses, barns, etc..but the growth was too much to see off the trails. We'll have to make a trip back in the fall.

Anyways, this fence can be found along the way, heading to Bottom Creek. Have a great weekend :)

  3. That is why it is important to keep your camera handy, you never know what you will see to capture. Nicely done.

  10. What a pretty and also unusual fence! Isn't it incredible that those old structures are still waiting there, despite having been half-forgotten for eons.

  15. What a neat fence!

    How far was the hike? I love waterfalls but uphill hikes can be breathtaking — literally.

    1. The route we took was about 5 miles round trip. It wasn't bad. We took the red trail to the falls and the yellow back. I heard from another family while we were sitting at the falls that the yellow trail is hardest taking it to the falls. Definitely worth the hike!
