besides the hikin' itself, i really like lowe's store when the wood-burning stove is goin'. smells good.:)

and moat mountain brewery after hikin' all day after the sun sets. clompin' in in your boots and sittin' at the bar and makin' a meal of appetizers and beers--it don't get much better than that!:)

i'm sure i can come up with more, but what are some other non-hikin' or peripheral pleasures of hikin' up there for you?

I've started several hikes with a full plate of corned beef hash from Yesterday's in Jackson. Mmmmmm... Seriously, the best corned beef hash in the free world.

And like you said, finishing up at the Moat with a pint or two of Square Tail does a body good.

Those of us who live here in the MWV are lucky because we have so many outstanding restaurants to choose from. 1785 Inn. Thompson House. Bellini's. Horsefeather's. Thorn Hill. Cafe Norte. Darby Field. There's so many and they're so varied. We hit Flatbread's tonight for some pizza and beverages, with toddler and 2-month old in tow. That's an easy one-- wrap up the day at the MWO and head across the street.

Not officially thread-related, but hiking begins and ends with a full belly!
