Hiking trail through this heathland/these heathlands of the Dolly Sods Wilderness.

Hiking trail through this heathland/these heathlands of the Dolly Sods Wilderness.
1) This is a "heathlands" because late-19th-century clearcutting led to wildfires that burned away the topsoil.
2) This is a "hiking trail" because floodwater scours away the shrubby plants as it barrels down the hillside unimpeded.
3) This is a "wilderness" because the United States Forest Service calls it that.
4) Scarequotes scarequotes scarequotes!
5) Blissed out outdoorspeople come here and coo spiritually about Nature's and God's "special places." It is heartfelt!
