Jefferson Barrens by jonathanjessup Jefferson Barrens by jonathanjessup
This mountaintop plateau has naturally treeless windswept barrens in the West Virginia highlands. They were discovered and first documented in 1740's by Peter Jefferson, father of Thomas Jefferson while surveying the 'Fairfax Line.' I've been trying to best represent them in photographs since discovering them myself. There are alpine plants here, but these lower ancient mountains are not high enough to have true tundra, so this environ is very unusual for this entire region. Photo taken in 2004.
