My all time favorite, & it's not "Spectacular" in anyway, but I was hiking along the AT just N of the Thomas knob shelter in the Grayson Highlands, & for those who know the AT, there are a lot, , , that's A LOT of seemingly pointless routing. So, I was again cussing those who lay out the AT, something along the lines of "Why did they take me off that small ridge for 50' just to make me climb back up to it on this stupid r OHMYGODLOOKATTHAT!"
Sorry no pictures, camera was dead, but as my head cleared the "stupid rock", the view framed by it was the best that trip, maybe ever, and as a bonus there was a young (I'm guessing 3 months) pony colt & Mom helping to frame the view. Granted, had I seen the view from the ridge instead of the stupid rock route, it wouldn't have been that great, but it was ABSOLUTELY PERFECTLY presented.
The cool thing about mom & son: Mom gave me a horses version of "Hey, howyoudoing" Didn't stop chewing or even act like she was going to get up (was laying down) Son was jumping around, ready to run from me "WHAT IS THAT THING MOM?" Mom gave him the "Just chill" look that all mom's can do, regardless of species. Yea, you know the one.
Suffice it to say I now rarely cuss those who do the trail routing,,,, rarely.
Cause you never know what that will lead to.
