However, I didn’t stop there, and I have the pics to prove it. I hiked all the way up to Erwin’s View in order to get the grandest possible vista. I’m not sure I could do this today, but I took my Blue Ridge Parkway trip during the brief period when I was boycotting the Evil Dex. I was a whole lot more energetic without that stuff.
