Mountaintop experience

Today's memory is of a backpacking trip I organized for Troop 119 in the summer of 2007. We did the 22-mile backpacking trail at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. Most of the trail is on the ridgeline between Kentucky and Virginia, but getting up on the ridge is one tough day's hiking. The next morning finds you at White Rocks, looking out over the valley. Worth the schlep.
