A week ago tomorrow, Caleb and I joined some new Kingsport friends (Ben, Emily, and their sweet girls Lily and Eden) for a Sunday afternoon hike on Roan Mountain. Roan Mountain was a truly magical place. It felt a lot like we were walking through the wardrobe and into Narnia. After the wonderful experience of biking the Creeper Trail a few days earlier, I joked that it seems now that I’ve got my Tennessee license and am official I could visit all the special places in Appalachia. [smile]
These pictures won’t do the landscape justice, but I must share them in the hopes that a bit of the beauty is evident. I’ve now got it in my head that I must take our Christmas card photos up there in the beautiful wilderness. Enjoy.
