pogue creek canyon trail

We took advantage of the unusually warm November weather to explore the trail at Pogue Creek Canyon Natural Area near the entrance of Pickett State Park.  Its an up and down trail through some massive rock formations and lots of mountain laurel to an overlook.

 First stop along the trail is Turkey Roost Rockhouse.  You can get an idea of its size by finding Peanut at the bottom of the picture below!
 I took several geology classes in college but I can't remember what these formations are called or what types of rock they are but they were very interesting!  You can't see it but they are eroding into a very fine sand underneath.  The sand is extremely soft to the touch, it feels like talc powder.

 This is the view from the overlook, it is suppose to be looking toward Pall Mall.  We sat here and enjoyed a pack of trail mix and a bottle of water!
