Appalachian Trail hike across the Roan Mountain Balds

We recently went out on a wonderful family outing to hike a portion of the Appalachian Trail along the NC/TN border and across the Roan Mountain Balds. We started out at the Carvers Gap trailhead right on the NC/TN border and followed this hike 3 miles out to Grassy Ridge Bald (& back to make it 6 miles roundtrip). It was a cloudy & chilly start but fortunately the sun burned through and gave us great light on the hike back. The rhododendron had bloomed early for us as well. The pics & video show how beautiful it was. Enjoy!
