Sat-Sun 9/17-18 - Backpacking

Sarah and I went backpacking this weekend NorthEast of Damascus VA.  US58 over Whitetop Mountain, Mt. Rogers, camped at Thomas Knob Shelter, through Grayson Highland State Park to VA603 where a shuttle from Damascus picked us up and took us back to US58 where our car was waiting.

Incredible hike.

11.3 miles, 6.5 hours hiking.  4 miles uphill, 3 down/rolling, then 4 more up to Mt Rogers. Tough day.

12.9 miles, 6.75 hours hiking.  Easier terrain today, but still not "easy".  Took our time through Grayson Highlands.

Incredible weekend.
