The Appalachian Trail

On our trip a couple of weeks ago Eileen wanted to go for a day hike on the Appalachian Trail. We did a small section (about 5 miles) in the area of Max Patch Mountain and then up to the top of the mountain. This is me on the “AT”.

While a bit strenuous for a short section, the hike was fairly easy over all and worth every bit of effort. This picture gives you sort of an idea as to the elevation change. That’s Eileen with Max Patch Mountain waiting for us in the background 🙂 

From the top of Max Patch Bald, the view was stunning.  Words cannot adequately express the grandeur of God’s creation – in fact I’m not one to burst into song, but all I could think of as we took in the view was “This is My Father’s World.” To add to the beauty of the view, we met some great people along the way, several great guys from Jellico, Tenn and a nice couple from Asheville. God blessed us in many ways that day – He has so many ways of doing that, doesn’t He?
