Photographer's Note

A small group of us were out hiking the Unaka Mountain section of the Appalachian Trial one day when we came across this peaceful scene.
It's not often that you come across another hiker -- reading!

I grabbed a quick shot of him before disturbing him and asking him what he was reading. I don't remember which book he was reading, but I do remember being momentarily horrified to hear he tore off each page from the book after he read them, in order to keep his load light as light as possible. It made sense once I thought about it, but still ... !

The Unaka Range is a mountain range on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina, in the southeastern United States. It is a subrange of the Appalachian Mountains and is part of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
