" This 1925 photograph shows two girls standing on McAfee Knob, a rock outcropping on the Appalachian Trail near Catawba, Virginia. This rock formation provides a scenic view and remains one of the better known landmarks on the entire trail. A notation in pencil on the scrapbook page to which it is affixed reads "Mary Grace and Elizabeth Trout on McAfee Knob 11/25". These two teenage girls, who were daughters of the photographer, Philip H. Trout, resided in nearby Roanoke, Virginia, for the remainder of their lives. The sisters married brothers, Mary Grace Trout becoming Mrs. E. Marvin Lemon and Elizabeth Trout becoming Mrs. Glenn H. Lemon. " Text from the History Museum of Western Virginia.
