One of the things I like best about hiking, is the peacefulness of being in the forest. Nothing can ruin a hike quicker for me than to meet a fellow hiker with a boom box (yes, this has happened). I’m not crazy about crowds when I’m seeking solitude. So I was delighted to discover a little known hike, with an amazing view; not a single fellow hiker in sight; (other than JG) and, it required almost no effort to walk to the rocky ledge.
It did, however, require long pants. This trail is not well traveled so you do have to sift through some thickets.
Can you spot my companion?
It was a little on the hazy side today, but the view was still incredible.
That’s JG with his signature drink.
We originally planned a longer hike, but on Monday, JG thought it would be fun for us to learn Pickleball. Let’s just say, it was a little more strenuous than we anticipated and one of us pulled a muscle (JG) and was not sure how far he could hike.
We enjoyed our time up there. I’m not going to tell you where it is because I don’t want it to become another McAfee’s Knob. (Actually, there is little chance of that since it requires a 3.3 mile drive down a narrow, gravel road.) But, still.
Now it’s off to celebrate our National Holiday. Even though I’m not feeling a lot of patriotism these days, I’ll take any excuse to hang out with friends. I’ll leave you with this one last view of my mystery hike.
Hope you all had a fun day!
