snow camping  Sucess!

This was my first experience of snow camping. We got hit by an unexpected storm and ended up walking around the Grayson Highlands through 6 inches of snow. A couple years later I returned to Rogers via AT section-hiking all the way from Springer.

good warmup  Sucess!

Did this on a south state highpoint tour before heading out west, definately a good warmup hike to stretch those winter legs for the big stuff.

Nice Hike  Sucess!

It was nice to find a highpoint in the area that didn't have a road to the top. Met lots of thru-hikers throughout the day.

Mt. Rogers  Sucess!

Man was it warm. I don't believe that winter will ever come this year. It was 65 degrees and sunny, even though the forecast had called for rain all weekend. I was climbing in a T-shirt for most of the way.

Windy and Cloudy  Sucess!

Summitted Mt Rogers from the Massies Gap parking area in Grayson Highland Park. Turned out to be a nice day after the storms blew through. Trip report to follow... Highpoint #5.

From Massie Gap  Sucess!

Awseome day on the trail, albeit a bit windy. I love crisp fall days on the trail! The route up Wilburn Ridge was rougher than I expected but the scenery was amazing. Very busy. I'm surprised there are not regulations on group size here as trail erosion is an obvious problem. Maybe there is and people are just ignoring it. Regardless it was a great hike and I'm anxious to get back!

Pony up the Mountain  Sucess!

My friend Bob and I visited this summit as part of a "southern" road-trip. We hit it just right, for eventhough it was a wet foggy and a chill day, the Rhododendrums and mountain azelas were in full bloom and there ponies every where. Stayed at a state campground (Grayson Highlands)that was very nice. We hiked up from Massie Gap to the AT and then took the summit spur trail. After passing thru an area of bramble, I was pleasantly surprised by lovely evergreens covered summit.

Grayson Highlands  Sucess!

Started in heavy spring rain but it let up just as I hit the top. Hike down was in beautiful (humid) clear weather.

A Hike Worth Doing Again  Sucess!

From Massie Gap via Wilburn Ridge is a beautiful hike. We saw three herds of ponies (two herds twice) and the ridge is spectacular, if not particularly strenuous.
