Mt. Rogers 2014

It's been 3 years since we hiked up to the highest point in Virginia.  My sister A, to celebrate her 100+ pound weight loss and new found energy and ability, wanted to take the challenge.  
 Everyone was is good spirits at the start of the 8 mile hike.  
V is training for a 1/2 marathon so she got up early and ran 6 miles before the hike. 
 E, who is not in training, did not.
 One mile into the hike and we're still smiling.
 It's hard not to smile with views like this.
 Closer to the top the land is not cleared so no view but a nice cool forest.
 Spectacular views.

 We even got to see some of the "wild" ponies.  I think J could have picked this one up and brought it home.
And there we are, at the top of Virginia.  Now we just have to get back down.
