1st Place - People on the Trail - Jeff Clark - A Man and His Hound
Early in the morning in Mt. Mitchell State Park, Dave Landreth and his black and tan hound Grace hit the trail. The MST crosses a number of sixers (6,000 foot peaks) in the state park as it passes through a dense spruce and fir forest that is more common to Canada than to the Southeastern U.S. The air is fresh, the aromas divine, and the trail inviting in the high country.
