    VA, Mt Rogers area

    A hiking trip, June 23 - 26
    Mt Rogers area, VA
    From the Elk Garden parking lot, we took the AT as far as Rhododendron Gap for camping.
    Some of the youngsters did a big day hike loop on Friday.

    Looks like nice weather. Someone wearing a down jacket in June is encouraging.

    It started as the last two of us were putting our stuff in the car.
    Then, it poured for quite a while.
    One of our group, who I met for the first time, One Wipe, is a trail runner. He left earlier Sun morn. He took the AT to Damascus, and made it there later in the day.
