We want to go up there. Yep, from here. First spring-like weekend of the year and the roads were open to get to one of our summer hiking trails, so we took advantage. We have shown you panoramic views from the top a couple of times before – if you want to see them, check out the late summer shot here and fall foliage view here.
So in trying to get a video going up the “steps” part of the trail, we forget that the humans have a disadvantage in that they are on two feet rather than four sturdy paws. As a result, the video has a very Blair Witch Project feel to it. Sorry about that (click here if you prefer to see it on YouTube).
Right after we finished that stretch of the trail, Cheoah expressed how hot it was getting compared to our snows of a week ago:
But, finally, we got to the top. Usually, this is crowded with other hikers, but we had the observation deck all to ourselves, so took many pictures:
