When the snow's just right,you can see the groom in his top hat leading his bride,her train flowing behind....
Can you see it???? Click on the picture to enlarge it after you read the next line.
From a distance,it really does look like a man (left) standing beside a woman (right) in a veil and long dress with a train curling down behind.
As legend has it a young couple fell deeply in love,but the girls father wouldn't allow them to marry. They were so much in love,however,that they decided to run away and get married,even without parental blessings.The couple planned everything in secret,and one cold,snowy night,the young man came to the girl's house and they stole away under cover of darkness.Her father heard them leaving and chased after them.The couple ran up on Mt. Pisgah to get away from him,but the father was staying close behind,threatening to kill the young man. Unfortunately,in their haste on the dark,cold and icy trail the young couple clinging to one another missed a turn in the path and fell off the mountainside. The girls father found them,and knew he had caused the tragedy. Forever after, so the legend goes,whenever it's cold and snowy,you can see the "bride and groom" in their wedding finery on the side of Mt. Pisgah.
It's obviously a rock formation that ices over and stands out white in winter,but ask yourself why it takes the form of this couple???? These mountains are full of legends such as this and if you research some of them you might be surprised at your findings. Who knows if this one has any foundation but the bride and groom legend sure is more romantic and interesting than just an icy rock formation,right???
Okay, can you tell this has been a boring day of housework and laundry!
