Exploring an Intimate Mountaintop

An Intimate Summit-2125Spying from the Summit-2101

There’s a new trail on Little Yellow Mountain. It still has the soft feeling underfoot of walking on a spongy forest floor and it leads to an intimate mountaintop marked with simple cairns. As the sun rose over the surrounding ridge lines to illuminate this small round wooded top, we felt a sense of being in a small private room in the wood, enjoying the view of the sunlight warming the forest while the morning shadows retreated down into the hollow below. Crozet, Virginia.
