    VIDEO: 2012 Mt Rogers Winter Hang

    Finally, here is my video trip report. In spite of the spring weather, it was a great time and I can't wait for next year. I hope you all enjoy the video.

    Great stuff.

    I like the campfire scene a lot, with different conversations all mingling together.

    I like that, too. The conversations are what makes a hang great, and are what is usually missing from a photo album. BTW, did you notice the video thumbnail? Look behind the "play" button in the middle...I thought that was very appropriate...

    Same here, Cranky Bear. Loved the campfire story--thanks to you and Lazy River Road for sharing.

    Thanks, I think music is an important part of a video. I usually try to pick something appropriate, and this time Maztrain picked for me! It's a very funny thing, though, how there are times that the lyrics fit the video so well it's like it was pre-planned. I can only take credit for a few of those times. The rest is just how it works out.

    Great video Bonsaihiker. This was my first hang, it was fun to see it all again. Mt. Rogers is a beautiful place. Loved getting to meet everyone and learn a wee bit about tree dwellin' Campfire and live music, good food, even got to try some livermush at the old Log Cabin. Like Dutch said, good memories. (Only next time, I'll try to avoid the midnight hike into the Wise Shelter. But the stream crossing did add a bit of excitement to it all!)

    Kudos,
