Pilot Mountain

Big Pinnacle, the rocky monadnock atop Pilot Mountain, is perhaps the most recognizable landmark in the North Carolina Piedmont. It is the gem of the Sauratown Mountains, which rise high above the flatlands north of Winston-Salem. By pure elevation, this mountain is dwarfed by the higher peaks 100 miles to the west. And yet, there may not be another peak in the state that emerges so prominently and stands out so dramatically from the surrounding landscape.

 

This shot was taken just outside of the state park's boundaries late on a November afternoon.

 

I'm living out of a suitcase for the next week and my internet access (and time) are limited, but I will get to your wonderful photostreams as time and internet access allow.

 

Thank you for visiting.
