Most Appalachian Trail hikers love the Grayson Highlands.  It’s easy to figure out why. There are great views and of course there are ponies. However, like with most parts of the trail, how you view a place is really dependent on the conditions.

My day through the highlands started out in snow and fog.

The trail itself is absolutely terrible as it is beat up and very rocky. Given I was hiking with a sore knee I’d been rehabbing it was not a great hike.  The clouds started to break later that afternoon and I did get a couple of views off of the highlands and it is a beautiful area. So given my views were so bad I’m including some pics below from my friend Second Star.
