AT NoBo  Sucess!

Leaving Sam's Gap on our annual section hike, we got up here just in time. The weather started changing as we neared the summit. Not long after, rain and thunder moved in. Great views! We saw a group of 8 retirees enjoying the summit, as well.

Over on a trail run  Sucess!

Started off at the intersection of Painted Ridge Road and the AT near the water tower on SW slopes. Ran up and over with my two dogs, saw 4 people on the summit, and continued down to the top of Little Bald (which is not really a bald), and did a return. Maple and Eolus accompanied the whole way.

Beautiful Views  Sucess!

Started late from Sams Gap at 3:30. Made the rt in a little over 5 hours. Had to use the headlamp for the last mile or so.

From Spivey Gap  Sucess!

Saw less than 10 people all day on a 14 mile AT hike on a weekend. Surprised, especially considering what a great peak this is.

Icy  Sucess!

Sunday Morning  Sucess!

Encountered 5 other hikers and some people chillin' at the summit. Some of the better views I've experienced on the Appalachian Trail.
