Not Soon Enough!

Room booked. Going to see the mountains for the first time in too long. Just a bit more than a week and I can breathe the mountain air, son. We'll be staying out our favorite National Park Service lodging: The Peaks of Otter Lodge.

I still haven't decided where I'm going to hike. But I might revisit the falls on Apple Orchard Mountain. We'll see.

I climb on the rocks near the summit of Flat Top Mountain. A weirdly-named peak, because from most points of view, it's almost as pointed as the aptly named Sharp Top Mountain.

It was so overcast and drizzly, I couldn't tell if I was at the high point of the mountain here, or not. I had to scramble to get to this spot.
Lots of strange jumbling of boulders near the top of the mountain. I think I will go back--especially if the weather is better.

It has been a long December. I hate being away from the high country for this long!
