Season Compare: Sharp Top
This season compare comes courtesy of Andrew Reams (aka “The Camera”). It’s of Sharp Top Mountain off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Peaks of Otter.
Sharp Top Mountain always amuses me because it was once believed to be the tallest mountain in Virginia. In fact, a stone from Sharp Top Mountain was inscribed and included at the top of the Washington Monument because it was thought to be “Virginia’s Loftiest Peak“. It turns out, Sharp Top isn’t the tallest mountain in Virginia. It isn’t even taller than the mountain RIGHT NEXT TO IT!
Even if it isn’t the tallest mountain in Virginia, Sharp Top is definitely a beautiful mountain and an absolutely gorgeous and rigorous hike. Gorgeous + Rigorous = Fulfilling.
And with that, here is Sharp Top on March 16, 2008 and then Sharp Top again on June 18, 2008.
