A great view here on top of Windy gap. The cliffs drop approximately 50 feet to the valley floor and are filled with small caves. Boone was known to sleep in many caves on his travels.
Givan and my legs burned as we followed the trail to the top of the bluff. We had crossed the same creek about a dozen times and the path we followed had turned to mashed potatoes from the horses that use the same route. But the mud and climb and creek have made this the most interesting section of the hike. Atop the bluff is an old road bed with low berms on each side. No doubt this is the original Boone Trace. We are camping on top of the cliff and will be waking in the morning to see what view the morning sun gives us in the valley below.
