Today was perhaps one the best hiking days ever. I left Old Orchard early and hiked UP into and through Grayson Highlands towards Mt Rogers. I’m at Thomas Knob Shelter (5,400 ft) for the night.
Here are some pictures from today:
By the way, got lucky when I made it to the shelter about 30 minutes before a thunderstorm came through and dropped a torrent on us.
