Another journal entry...

5/3/96 I was able to do an 8 miler today from NOC at 1700ft to Cheoah Bald at 5062ft. What a view! Going to watch the sun set this evening. The view from here is beyond words. I'll get some pictures but it just won't capture the view and feeling of this place. I am here with the Brothers, Grant and Lisa, a 95er named Snore-a-saurus, and someone named Daydreamer. Going to try 10 tomorrow but there is some nasty stuff ahead.

The mountain breeze the cloulds up high,
Five thousand feet up in the sky.
Another climb, another day,
a few more miles, North the way.
I stop my walk, the night is here,
I really wish I had a beer!
At least some of my friends are near...

Max Patch, North Carolina. Look closely at the top of the bald and you will see two small dots. These dots are The Sweethearts (Steve & Lea)! Notice the trail blazes on the posts.
