This is footage of a walk from White Oak Creek to Locust Creek, to Colbert's Ridge Trail, up to Deep Gap, and then to the top of Winter Star Mountain, (Black Mountain Range) Yancey County, NC, USA on a chilly 02 October 2011.
Winter Star, besides having a truly magical name, is an outstanding peak of the southern Appalachians. One of the highest mountains in the eastern USA, it offers some unique hiking opportunities and some of the nicest views one could imagine. Rising starkly above Deep Gap, there are some great vistas to be had of the ridge rising over the gap, and of the nearby peaks of the Black Mountains which loom all around Winter Star.
