Route Climbed: AT spur trail Date Climbed: September 2000  Sucess!

This is our 6th summit on the AT. Dy and I think it was the most beautiful, though there is no view from the summit. Perhaps it's because you can't drive to it, like many on the AT summits.

Route Climbed: AT from Grayson Highlands State Park Date Climbed: May 28, 2001  Sucess!

A nice easy hike although the day I did it was cool and windy with fog. It opened up a little bit and so I did see some views. I also saw cattle, wild ponies, and a deer.

Route Climbed: Mt. Rogers summit trail/AT spur trail Date Climbed: July 28, 2002  Sucess!

Enjoyed this easy hike, mainly because I was able to do it with my father, who does not hike regularly and had never done any backcountry camping before. I would definately recommend this trip to any beginners out there who want to get taste of the Virginia highcountry, and a bit of the Appalachian trail to boot.



The views are beautiful and the high, rocky meadows reminded me of Scotland a bit... Wild ponies everywhere and very tame. Not crowded at all and awesome camping.

State highpoint #11.

The ponies at Rhododendron Pass were a nice surprise.

Bagged this one along my 1995 AT thru-hike. I don't remember anything about it...just that I visited the summit!
