Angel's Rest

Angel's Rest rises above Pearisburg, Giles County, VA. Many years ago when I was able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, I backpacked to the top and spent the night in my sleeping bag looking up at the stars and down on the twinkling lights of the town. I didn't notice any angels resting nearby on that night, but I think I know why they might have paused to rest here. It is also used by hikers following the Appalachian Trail.
