hiking trail

I took this picture from a hiking trail off of the Blue Ridge Highway in NC. I'm very glad I didn't have to make that entire climb by foot. Just look at how those trees on the right fall off. That's very steep terrain. It's so hard to imagine the settlers back in the 1800s traversing these mountains on foot and, god forbid, with wagons. I went up the Cumberland Gap a few years ago and the entire time I was driving up I was thinking about that. Yikes.
