Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Stony Man Mountain
Its 3am. You’re rotting in the stacks of Alderman, studying for the 4 finals you have in the next 3 days. You realize you are wildly unprepared. You watch the girl across from you take a swig of her doubleshot gingerbread latte, momentarily forgetting her impending doom. The two of you share a look of desperation. Panic sets in. You look back down at the 7 tabs of notes and practice tests you have open on your computer. You click on Netflix and carry on with your night.
Finals szn is the worst but it doesn’t have to be all bad. Let’s get some fresh mountain air!
I’m heading up to get one last Stony Man sunset in before heading home for the holidays, as it is no doubt my favorite sunset spot in SNP, and anyone with or without finals to study for is welcome to join me.
We’ll depart from Echols promptly @ 3:00, drive to the Stony Man parking lot (~1hr 20min drive), hike ~3/4 of a mile to the summit and hangout and watch the sunset, then hike back down and drive back to Cville where we should be getting back around 6:45.
e’ll be doing an abbreviated version of the first hike listed here: https://www.nps.gov/shen/stony-man.htm
