Today, I visited a favorite spot on the Appalachian Trail -Spy Rock, Virginia. It sports a 360 degree view atop a 40′ boulder scramble. I’ve had many a visit here in the past six summers when I worked in this section as a ridgerunner. This time I came as a day-hiker with no mission to educate anyone.
I couldn’t pass up the chance to remove a few firerings to preserve the untrammeled appearance of the place, but that was it.
Beauty, space, and freedom to move – that’s what the place evokes! Let the colors flow the same! All is well!
