Photo #1 looks at the southern edge of Tenerife Mountain, above Grays Hollow Brook, and the easternmost part of Grays Hollow below at the far right. Visible rock ledges define this aspect of Tenerife Mountain, though they have been better colonized by trees than those of The Peak to the northeast. The large bands of evergreen forest interspersed with somewhat smaller bands of deciduous trees along the upper reaches of the mountain is fairly unusual and diminishes towards the interior of the hollow, which, being better protected, is a bit counterintuitive.
Photo #2 looks to the left of photo #1 into Grays Hollow as far as one can see from the Sunrise Look-Off; it continues to the northwest behind the slope in the middle ground. Like Tenerife Mountain itself, these slopes, including those further back in the centre, are all edges of North Mountain. The topographical map shows Grays Hollow Brook flowing down from the northwest section of the hollow and is met at the slope at the right by North Branch Brook, which itself is joined a bit further up by the Whiskey Den Brook (likely a story there!); Grays Hollow Brook flows into the North Aspy River just a few metres/yards upriver from the bridge on the Bay St Lawrence Road. Given the shade in the hollow, it’s hard to judge the state of the foliage, but some bare trees are clearly visible right of centre.
Photo #3 looks to the right of photo #1 at the eastern face of Tenerife Mountain, most of which is covered by deciduous trees, many unchanged, some changed, and still others bare, and not all of those in the upper reaches. At this distance, it is hard to be certain, but there are spots of what appear to my eyes to be bright reds sprinkled across this whole scene.
Photo #4 looks to the right of photo #3 at the northern portion of the eastern face of Tenerife Mountain; the rock faces of The Peak are at the far right above the valley of Johns Brook. The convolutions and folds of the Cape Breton Highlands are particularly in evidence in this view. The outer reaches are mainly deciduous and at or near their peak of fall colours, whereas evergreens are lower down; higher up, there is mixed forest, but the summits are mainly evergreens.
Photo #5 looks at the many-hued foliage on the slope of North Mountain above Grays Hollow Brook, where the colours are seen to be close to or at their peak. A few green leaves are showing here, but most are changed and incandescent in the sunlight. The reds are sporadic and widely scattered, but they are there if you look for them.
