SPRING ON OLD RAG

IMG_2191Yesterday I celebrated my birthday on the 6th with a birthday hike on one of my favorite trails: Old Rag in the Shenandoah. Since it was raining the day before (the reason for the the belated hike), there was a deep fog blanketing the mountain. It produced a truly enchanting look in the forest as I climbed to the summit. At the summit, the sun suddenly appeared and burned away the fog — exposing the signature vista of the Old Rag.

I was able to use one of my birthday gifts from the family: a new camel-back knapsack that allows you to drink water through a tube without bothering with bottles. It was awesome. Here are some pictures from the hike.

  1. JT, happy birthday. Apparently Teddy the porcupine thinks it’s Christmas. And still won’t share gifts!
