Garden in the Sky

Record #:
Rising 5,100 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Bluff Mountain, near West Jefferson, is a treasure chest of botanical riches. Forty-two rare, endangered animals and flowering plants, including the bog turtle, wood lily, and sundew, are found there. An unusual feature of the mountain is a highland plateau that contains the only fen in the southern Appalachians.
