Big Lost Cove Cliffs
We got up early Sunday morning, still not decided on what to do.  We finally decided to pick up the one trail we couldn't get to yesterday - Big Lost Cove Cliffs - and then hit the Parkway and take a slow ride back home.  We had hiked Little Lost Cove Cliffs the day after Thanksgiving, so there was very little green on the mountains.  Today, I was looking forward to a little different view of the highest point on the Blue Ridge Range and checking out another new hike.  We managed to get up, brew some coffee (when we camp - we do it RIGHT with real drip coffee on the Coleman stove), ate some banana bread and packed up camp all within 2 hours.  So, it was still fairly early when we hit the trailhead.  The trail was 3.4 miles and once again was rated incorrectly on the trail map - this one was noted as "Easy" and was certainly more moderate.  There were some rather steep areas and once again a huge downed tree that looked like a 12 person canoe!  But we made it up to the pinnacle and WHAT A VIEW!  We took some shots from the top of the cliffs and just soaked up the fresh breeze and warm sunlight, feasting on the blueberries picked fresh off the shrubs on the cliffs edge.  Unfortunately, the time came to wrap up this hike, head back to the car and make our way towards home.  One more stop at Chestoa View Trail on the Parkway and we wrapped up another wonderful weekend.  While we look forward to the day we can continue hiking and wandering through the mountains we love full time, these short interludes are small gems strung along the path towards our future.  And the future looks incredibly wonderful!

If your Sundays are free and you wanted to make it a memorable one, it's going to be a good decision to spend it in an activity where you will learn a lot! In your case, you went trekking and I must say that you've been to a very beautiful place! Big Lost Cove Cliffs' view is priceless. How I wish I can also be there one day to see it through my eyes! By the way, I am looking forward for more posts of yours!

Education give the lesson of fair treatment and put great emphasis on adopting right ways of doing business but still there are many people who despite of being much qualifies tend to adopt unfair ways of earning that lead to put negative impression on their family and society.

Wow! You did a great shot at each. I have a fear in heights that is why I don’t relate to your blog but I am always curious about trying this one. I guess high places are a good place for soul searching. Big lost cove cliff’s pictures are so attractive. My ex-boyfriend is always fond of having mountain climbing and I can’t, maybe that is one of the reasons why we broke up. Anyway, we are both happy separately. Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos of yours.
