Bovinity in the Blue Ridge. This one from Mt. Mitchell, NC. Posting will continue to be very sparse. For those of you looking for a couple of good reads, I recommend Tim Egan;s Big Burn and Greg Zuckerman’s The Frackers.
The “problem” with very tall mountains is that when you are on them, you can’t see them … the hike was superb. If you’ve ever hiked the ADK’s or parts of the Whites or Maine … hiking in the Black Mountains is nothing at all like it. Dare I say it, but hiking a 3,000 footer in the ADKs is far more grueling than a 6,600 footer in the Blacks. Both beautiful of course.
