Hardwoods on Burgess Mountain in Oconee National Forest

This photo is from January near Burgess Mountain in the Oconee National Forest. I love how there is a pine stand right along the road with lots of overgrowth, but with a little walking it transforms into an open Oak Hickory forest. It’s lovely at all times of year, but is especially open in the winter.
