Running smoothly down the trail, I felt the temperature drop - my cheeks tightened. It was getting colder. Clad in a running vest and wool sweater, I continued sojourning though the mountains. Breaking fresh trail, the sign for Charlie’s Bunion came into view. For a second, I regretted not bringing my camera, but then I remembered that not all moments were meant to be shared. I continued through the mist…
These shy smoky mountains were showing me their best because they knew I’d keep the secret. Smiling, I made for home.
P.s. - the Bunion tour took, 2:35’:00”
"For what reason have I this vast range and circuit, some square miles of unfrequented forest, for my privacy, abandoned to me by men? My nearest neighbor is a mile distant, and no house is visible from any place but the hill-tops within half a mile of my own. I have my horizon bounded by woods all to myself; a distant view of the railroad where it touches the pond on the one hand, and of the fence which skirts the woodland road on the other. But for the most part it is as solitary where I live as on the prairies. It is as much Asia or Africa as New England. I have, as it were, my own sun and moon and stars, and a little world all to myself."
