    Thank you for showing the actual trail head location. My house isn’t far from the trail and it’s location is at the base of Cooks. I get many people who get lost and end up on the property where they need to be re-directed back to the trail head location. I have featured the Mountain quite a bit on my Facebook sharing photo page.

    As a former English teacher and avid hiker, I really enjoyed this article. I liked the Dicken’s reference when you alluded to Marley’s chains and laughed about the ‘teeth on the floor’ upon arrival. I liked the closing of the article too, wrapping up where you began. Nice work!
