Graveyard Fields and Looking Glass Rock

The parking area for Graveyard Fields on the Parkway was full as usual this day. The Yellowstone Prong starts here on Black Balsam Knob and plunges into the Graveyard Fields valley over Upper Falls. Then the stream meanders through the valley which has relatively low relief and a high elevation, compared to the narrow valleys found nearby. To the left of the picture, the stream plunges off this semi-plateau to form Second and Yellowstone Falls. Looking Glass Rock sits in the Davidson River Valley, the summit being some 2000\' below.
