    I think this storm will miss Mt Rogers. But, there's still time!

    "I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver

    Hey, Doctari...does this look like our hike? Followed the trail (or tried to) on Google Earth. I suspect it's pretty close, and I've marked the waypoints on my GPS. Let me know if you want me to send the coordinates to you. Check out the elevation profile...

    Yea, I'll try the coordinates, but my GPS is weird about doing Waypoints that way. I do oft refer to her (My GPS) as a "Silly Wench"
    The profile looks like how I remember the area. Definitely not easy, but not Horrid. I think allowing 4 hrs to do 3.6 miles in should be reasonable & even allow for sight seeing & photo ops. Even arriving at the parking lot at noon would still allow any to get to the summit before it gets dark. (0.9 MPH average)
    That being said, I am fully prepared to turn around if the snow is too deep. Did a 6 mile day hike in similar snow / cold conditions Wednesday with about a 5 lb pack & had a great time, not the climbs as at Mt Rogers & 25 lbs less than what I'll carry on this hike, but fun none the less.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
