Craggy Pinnacle, a high point in the parkway with beautiful 360 degree views, is a favorite sunset spot to hike for meditative moments with family or lovers. On one hike, the skies were clear and the sunset brilliant; the rhododendrons were not yet in bloom and there was still a chill in the air. These two young women sat together and laughed and talked. It was a moment I captured with my camera, and later on paper with watercolors, and one I won’t soon forget.
