Snubbed McAfee Knob Pose!

April 18, 2008 at 2:28 pm 7 comments

Earlier this week, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy revealed the design finalists for the Virginia Appalachian Trail License plate. Two of the designs featured McAfee’s Knob and they experimented with different poses for the hiker at the top. As a refresher, here were the two poses:

Option A Hiker

Option B Hiker

But there is another possibility that apparently did not make the final consideration- Sitting on the very edge with your legs dangling!

Okay.  Perhaps that pose isn’t exactly state-sanctioned license plate material.  🙂 But it does seem to be a Flickr user favorite.  Enjoy!

    Ne-ver! I’ve been there tons of times, but never had the guts, or lack of judgment, to do that. 😉 If I recall correctly, that last little ledge (+/-2 feet) is even tilted downward! Makes for an awesome picture though.

    […] 21, 2008 Sitting on the very edge wasn’t the only McAfee Knob pose that was overlooked in the Virginia Appalachian Trail […]

    @thruhike98 – Yeah I’ve never done it either. But I do have a few optical illusion shots where it LOOKS like I’m standing right on the very edge.

    Where are the folks with the photo of the camera pointed down, over the ledge with the knees & feet in view? That would be awesome!
