When hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway in these mountains you sometimes come upon a setting that suggests that particular spot was once more cultivated than it is now. Maybe a farm was once there, or a cabin with a garden that is long gone over into wildness again. This is one of those places, with a small stand of apple trees left alone out on a hillside, reminiscent of a more simple time long ago.
