Photographing Spruce Knob

Thumbnail

Spruce Knob (elevation 4,863 feet) is the highest point in West Virginia as well as the entire Allegheny Mountains range. It sits atop Spruce Mountain and contains a sky island of boreal forest made up mostly of spruce. The spruce trees branches point east due to gusty winds out of the west. During my time there, I discovered the western side of the summit is much cooler than the eastern side. The summit contains meadows filled with large boulders interspersed with dense forest. Spruce Knob is on a ridge commonly referred to as Allegheny Front.
