Hike up Mt Rogers, Virginia

Hike up Mt Rogers, Virginia

Our hike up to the summit of Mt. Rogers, the highest point of Virginia, was one of our high points of our trip (no pun intended, well maybe a pun was intended).

We tracked our trail on the way up using Gaia GPS for the first time. Loving the app! 

We didn’t have any Internet connection in the campground, so we decided to take the day off work. We planned the whole day for the 9-mile round trip hike. We took our time up the mountain enjoying the scenery.

Part of our hike was on the Appalachian Trail. Some parts were a bit gnarly with getting over some big boulders. We were told by the young man who was working the park’s gift shop that when we were close to the summit, it would smell like Christmas. He wasn’t kidding. It was like walking into a different world.

The day was amazing!
