GATLINBURG (WATE) - A Tennessee couple is celebrating their recent engagement.
The unique proposal is spreading like wildfire on social media.
UT student Curtis Bowery had been planning a hiking trip with his girlfriend Ashley Ellis for about a year.
When they reached the peak of the Chimney Tops Trail, he stopped to take a selfie with her and an engagement ring.
Ashley says she was shocked and also surprised to see two of their friends, who had hiked ahead of them, take these pictures.
The two are living apart right now, but hope to get married next spring.
Ashley is working in Chattanooga while Curtis finishes up his agricultural education degree at UT.
