Locust Cove to Cheoah Bald

On day 2 we set out from Locust Cove Gap again, but this time we went in the opposite direction. We climbed 1500 feet in elevation over about 2 miles, and crossed the snow line. The weather changed drastically, and suddenly the mountain and trees were covered in an icy, wind-blown snow that reminded us of feathers. The hike was steep, but we were rewarded with a beautiful, panoramic view of the Smokies once we reached the bald.
