McAfee’s Knob in the Snow
This time last week, I was a little bitter. It seemed everyone I knew got tons of snow. And not just any snow. Great snow. Fun snow. Perfect snowball and snowman making snow. The kind of snow that just lights up the Appalachian Mountains. The kind of snow that makes the air pure and crisp and invigorates you as you breath. The kind of snow I would love to hike in.
But…outside my window in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, everything from my level yard to the flat horizon was still brown and green.
Luckily, it is Flickr to the rescue! Even though I was snowless and separated from the mountains, I still got to appreciate a wintry version of the Appalachian Trail’s staple, McAfee’s Knob. One photographer snagged a shot of McAfee’s Knob from Roanoke’s Mill Mountain. Meanwhile another spent 4 hours hiking to get pictures from the top.

Ah…. just lovely.
