Long Weekend

Lucky Break


On the grassy area outside our room from a few years ago. This view is looking across the Blue Ridge Parkway at Sharp Top Mountain.

I lucked out this year. My long weekend fell on the calendar alongside Thanksgiving. I get four days off without having to take any annual leave. So Carole and I are headed up to the Peaks of Otter for a few days of sightseeing and hiking. (These guys should pay me for all this promotion!) So this may be my last post for a few days.

This view can be seen by hiking the trail around the lake. Looking back across the lake, you can see the lodge and office on the lake shore, with Harkening Hill looming behind the lodge.

That's a sharp top!

Funny thing is...the mountain that sits across the way from it is called "Flat Top", which is, if anything, sharper than Sharp Top.
