Louisiana-born Eric and Brent McGraw have found the local hiking and history to their liking since moving to the area last year. Eric’s co-worker Ashley Odell and myself joined the brothers on a hike up Sharp Top and on a steep diversion to the 1943 plane crash site on the mountain. Eric likes war history especially, so the crash site was particularly interesting to him. Sharp Top’s view alone is worth the hike but the diversion made it even more interesting, though much tougher.
