A hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains will leave you with a sense of timeless wonder, and if you are a flatlander like me, often out of breath! This view appeared on a trail after about a 20 minute climb from the parking lot. Last fall our son Evan and daughter in law Brittany brought my wife and I, and Brittany's mom, to watch them do a rock climb of a vertical cliff face. Watching them rope up and perform what was for the spectators a hair raising feat of daring and ability, renewed my determination to stay on solid ground! But I got great photos of them, and the surrounding crags.
I hope you enjoy it,
