Just sharing some pictures from yesterday’s hike. It was a crisp, cool Saturday and we just wanted to be in the woods for a little hike. We started on the War Spur Trail behind Mountain Lake and ended up on the Appalachian Trail which took us to Wind Rock. Due to strong winds this season and heavy snow last week, there were a lot of trees down.
Me, posing on Wind Rock.
You can access Wind Rock by walking about .2 miles from the parking lot entrance to the AT. We’ve done that before. We were parked at the entrance to the War Spur Trail and didn’t realize the AT connection was so much longer, so instead of retracing our steps, we just walked the last two miles on the road, which followed the stream.
What started out simple, ended up much longer and more challenging. Isn’t that kind of like life?
Happy Easter Everyone!
