Look across miles of autumn orange and red foliage to Moore's Wall, at Hanging Rock State Park, Stokes County, North Carolina, USA.
From atop Hanging Rock, you can view across a sea of autumn orange and red foliage to Moore's Wall, at Hanging Rock State Park in Stokes County, North Carolina, USA. (Panorama stitched from 4 images.) The eroded quartzite knob called Hanging Rock rises to 2150 feet elevation. The park is 30 miles (48 km) north of Winston-Salem, and approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) from Danbury. Hanging Rock State Park is located in the Sauratown Mountain Range, which is made up of monadnocks (or inselbergs, isolated hills) that are separated from the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains. Prominent peaks in the Sauratown range rise from 1,700 feet (520 m) to more than 2,500 feet (760 m) in elevation and stand in contrast to the surrounding countryside, which averages only 800 feet (240 m) in elevation. Named for the Saura Native Americans who were early inhabitants of the region, the Sauratown Mountains are the erosion-resistant quartzite remnants of mountains pushed up between 250 and 500 million years ago.
