On Sunday afternoon we revisited one of our favorite walks, the Point Lookout Trail in McDowell County. It is a paved trail that is popular with hikers and bikers. The trail runs between Ridgecrest and Old Fort and has some great views of the Royal Gorge and sometimes a train passes thru on the 19th. century railroad just below the level of the road.
We started out from the Old Fort end where the trail goes uphill at a gradual incline. The weather turned a bit ominous, so we headed back. The storm caught us before we made it back out and we got drenched. Way to get cooled off!
