Re: Questions about the AT... (fwd)

Are you thinking of Chestnut Knob Shelter with views into Burkes Garden 
valley and the Beartown Wilderness?  There is on old cabin there leftover 
from the fire watching days.  I think it was renovatede in late 94 or 
early 95--at least after I came through in early June 94.  The renovation 
was covered in an article in AT News last year I believe.  I didn't see 
the mist, but witnessed one of the most glorious sunsets that night, with 
light just bouncing off the surrounding hills and darkness creeping into 
the valley below.  

Hope this helps.
