AT to Charlies Bunion – 12/21/15
I started my Christmas break on the trails of the Great Smoky Mountains…. jumping on the icy AT at Newfound Gap and reaching the foggy outcropping of Charlies Bunion. Going into the dayhike, I hoped for a better view at the bunion but something was special about the solitude of feeing like you are in a cloud in the middle of the wilderness. It was a great reminder also that it’s not always about the payoff view at the end… It’s about the adventure getting there.
