Back to the Trip . . .

Well, after a brief hiatus from writing about our trip to the mountains – I now return.

On Wednesday and Thursday of our week in the mountains, we climbed a couple of large mountains.

On Wednesday, we hiked up Mt. Pisgah, which is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Named after the Biblical Mountain from which Moses viewed the Promised Land, Mt. Pisgah is quite an impressive ordeal to a flatlander. About 20 months ago, I tried to hike up Mt. Pisgah and found I was horribly out of shape. (I know, I should have already known that, but sometimes we just need a good slap in the face).

At any rate, I began to work out and train and have now stood atop that grand work of God’s creation twice. This time I had the distinct pleasure of having my wife by my side – it was her first time and she was a champ at the climb.

Next – our trip up Max Patch Mountain and a hike on the Appalachian Trail.
