Today my sister, mom, and I went on a sunrise hike. We woke up at 4 am to drive to Carvers Gap and hiked to Round Bald (5825'). The sun rose over layers of blue mountains creating a beautiful contrast with the orange sky. We then walked around the Roan Mountain Rhododendron Gardens. This time of year is when the rhododendron are in peak bloom. We got lost on the trails and there was a lot of cloud cover. We saw a few blooms but not any at an overlook.
