Good Fences #71 Mount Rogers 2015

V wanted to do something Sunday other that sit around, so we took our 6th hike to the top of Mount Rogers, the highest point in Virginia.   First the fence pictures.  Then you can skip the family pictures if you want. 
 The views from almost any direction on this 8 mile hike are stunning.
 The biggest problem with hiking is that you have to watch where you are going and can't enjoy the endless vistas enough.  Yet another reason to be trail riding instead.
 V, E and J were all up for the challenge, along with V's boyfriend Mike.
 J broke out his favorite trail food, sardines and crackers, for lunch.  I, on the other hand, had a balanced meal of Cap'n Crunch and a cucumber.
 Our lunch spot took a little climbing to get on and off.
 We were lucky enough to see the "wild" ponies.  They are always a favorite.
 We didn't try to pet these however.
 And we made it to the top.
 There's Mike and V.
On the way up this section some boy scouts were coming down.  One had his feet slip out from under him and he toppled backwards landing on his backpack.  "It's a good thing I didn't land on a rock," he opined.

What a hike! I'd never make it up there but wow the views were wonderful. - The ponies were so cute. Don't think I'd pet that bull either. Looks like you all had a great time. Interesting lunch choices!
