Pine Mountain Hike – West Loop Trail and David G. Archer Overlook

Pine Mountain Hike – West Loop Trail and David G. Archer Overlook

The leaves were just starting to come out, and the weather was perfect.  It was one of those hikes where climbing off the mountain is the last possible thing you would ever want to do, that is until your stomach starts growling to tell you that it…
