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?
