Title

SR060 McAfee Knob

Description

This card reads, “From the crest of McAfee’s Knob, near Salem, at an altitude of 4,000 feet, and commanding a view of entrancing beauty. ‘Point of Rocks’ projects over the Valley far below. With nearly 2,000 feet of space beneath him, the visitor finds he does not have to travel thousands of miles to Yosemite Valley to grow dizzy on stupendous heights or to view men and horses dwarfed to pygmies in the depths below.” McAfee is one of the most photographed spots along the Appalachian Trail.
