I was a little disappointed by the lack of summit views, although there were some great west & east views along the ridgeline. Of course, those even paled in comparison to the views we found on Jolly Mountain earlier during the day. A couple of us think a cougar was sitting on a rocky cliff above us and got startled as we passed by making noise.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
