I have now completed the “VA Triple Crown.” Tinker Cliffs, McAfees Knob and The Dragons Tooth are all behind me.
I slackpacked 15+ miles today; hiked back to Jake and Kristi’s from Catawba. The rain started after the momentous climb to the Dragons Tooth and continued all day. When I finally finished I was a drowned rat.
I really enjoyed the Brush Mtn Wilderness, the second half of the hike. The trail was well groomed. I even found some trail magic and got a Starbucks Vanilla Late just before descending off the ridge.
I’ll be doing laundry tomorrow and laying low until all the thunderstorms pass through. Tomorrow will at most be a nero.
