The ride up was cut in half by a quick stop at Buck Shoals Vineyard. Also mentioned at a later post. And if I don't get around to the post sooner than later, just take my word for it here, and don't go. It wasn't that great.
Off we went up the mountain side! The bridge at the beginning of the trail shows you that you're not going to regret the steep trek. I think it was 2006, I actually took my sister's engagement pictures on this same trail. They turned out awesome (although I don't want to brag!) , I wish I had them on the computer so I could post one on here.
Needless to say, that night made the extravaganza, an EXTRAVAGANZA! And the 3 hour ride home the next day, we spent pulling over every-so-often to yaak on the side of the road. I wasn't puking but almost wishing I was... just to feel better somehow!
Anyways, the trip was fun and I can't wait for L.A.K.E. 2010!!!
