Over "The Notch".
This is a gorgeous narrow, curvy road that goes over the mountain. It's seasonal and also is actually closed frequently even in the summer because tractor trailer drivers regularly miss the very large signs telling them not to proceed. Sigh. This is actually a pretty small sign. There are several on each side. One is *huge*.
We have lovely hiking there, though I have only been about halfway. There are a lot of stone steps in the beginning that are tough on my knees. I figure it's OK, it is a “difficult” level hike, after all. Micah always claims it's a nice *family* hike...
Once I've gone far enough, I head back to the car to read and people watch while the boys move on with dad. The people watching part is also good fun.
