In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
Sometimes the shortest hikes are the best. Sunny day, breeze from the west, grass swaying, kites in the sky. Emily, Ramona, Beth, Gabe and I spent a wonderful afternoon at my favorite destination: Max Patch. As we were walking up the AT to the summit, we met a couple of section hikers, Cat and Cameron. Cameron was retching on the side of the trail. We made sure he was ok and offered a ride back to their car at Big Creek in the Smoky’s. A wonderful couple from Florida with a new found adoration for the trail. Perhaps the one thing greater than nature are the wondrous people that you meet along the way.
Total mileage is 1.6 miles.
