Two miles in and six miles out was the running joke among the hikers I was with in Cumberland County on New Year’s Eve.
The 50-degree weather was nice for the last day of December as we made our way down Black Mountain to Windlass Cave.
The wind kicked up at intervals, necessitating some wardrobe adjustments, but we all had adequate layers.
The couple of miles downhill was an easy romp. Even though we covered the same ground on the way out, it was all uphill — hence the joke about it being three times longer.
