Sam Knob as seen from the trail, 2014-05-20
Rocko and I climbed three mountain peaks in two days. On Monday we scaled Black Balsam Knob; on Tuesday we climbed the Devil's Courthouse and Sam Knob.

Black Balsam Knob and Sam Knob are both over 6,000' in height.

Sam Knob has two peaks. This one, the North one, is the highest.
Shot taken looking sorta northeast from atop the highest rock outcropping.

Looking southish from the lower South peak of Sam Knob, which I call "hump 2".
The Devil's Courthouse can be seen in the background, right of center.
Looking back down the trail from Sam Knob. Notice the meadow, which was seen in the approach shot.
Black Balsam Knob, which we ascended the previous day, is left of center.

There are a lot of trails spidering out from that trailhead. Next on the agenda is a hike out to the Devil's Courthouse and back.
