Lookout Mountain

It's been a long time since my last post~ sorry, everyone!  I have been among the students working on midterm exams and papers all week.  It appears as if I'm done for now, so I celebrated a bit this weekend with a hiking trip!  
Because the leaves are at their brightest these days, I knew that anywhere my friends and I chose to go, we would be privy to an amazing view.  So, after some debate, we decided to head to Lookout Mountain, in Black Mountain, NC.  
What an awesome hike!  Not only was the weather perfect, but the scenery was unbelievable.  Although the hike was slightly strenuous at points, it was totally worth the effort when we were at the top of Lookout, gazing at the mountains around us.  We met a lot of friendly hikers and their dogs at the top, and they chatted with us and even helped us take some pictures.  
What a wonderful way to sped our Saturday afternoon.  I know many people are interested in UNC Asheville because of the hiking available in the region; Lookout Mountain is one among many, many trails that WNC offers residents and visitors.  I invite anyone who has not done any hiking around here to give it a try.  You'll be sure to have a blast~ 
And now, our pictures!!
