On 11 July, four folks hiked to Hump Mountain to see the setting of the Common Reading selection, Stand Up that Mountain. To see a selection of images (captions in the works), click here!
I went again with another group of colleagues and friends! There are more photos here.

A Stand Up that Mountain Appalachian Trail Hiking Adventure
Who: Faculty and Staff participating in the events around the Common Reading selection in Fall 2015.
What: A hike to view the area discussed in the book! This hike is in the grassy balds so there will be long-range views.. This isn’t just an experience related to the book, but also an opportunity to see some of the best the Appalachians has to offer!
When: Saturday, Jul 11, 2015. I plan to leave Raleigh about 5 AM.
Where: We’ll hike Overmountain Victory Trail from Roaring Creek Rd to the Appalachian Trail. On the AT, we’ll hike out to Hump Mountain and back. This is about 9.5 miles round trip.
