Ampersand Mountain

This past weekend my family was up at Camp Cherokee for work camp. On Monday we hiked Ampersand Mountain. It was pretty cool :)

Here's a cool little frog we saw on the way up.

i'm have to ask...why is it called ampersand mountain? is it shaped like one? or is it just the trail that resembles that particular punctuation??

I've been meaning to comment on this and tell you that those are wonderful pictures :) I especially like the one of your parents.

Johonn, I did a little research and discovered that Ampersand mountain is named after nearby Ampersand River. Ampersand River was named after the punctuation mark because it is very twisted and curvy. There is also an Ampersand Lake named after the river.
