    Vid:Va/Classic Grayson Highlands Loop

    Poof and I meet up with TallPaul and BonePile for this loop hike in the Grayson Highlands. I'd rank the vistas here with any in the National Parks I've visited...perfect weather 95% of the trip. This trail is rocky, just know that before you go. Hang sites around Wise Shelter a given...second night more challenging. Fantastic hiking partners though we didn't really get to hang with them If you can do this loop 2 weeks (ish) from now you be bowled over by the rhodo bloom explosion there.


    OK, part 2....water,hiking out, African steer encounter....another timelapse (or two), and the change in weather:

    Fantastic video MM ! You really captured the trail, the ponies, the weather and more.
    It was great being able to join you, Poof & Bonepile on this adventure. This one will be seared in the memory banks.

    Rightly enjoyed that Medicineman ... err ... or should we call you "Salt Lick" from now on?

    Awesome video and pics of our loop hike. It was really great to finally meet you and Poof. And it was great to rehike this part of the AT after so many years. It was even better than I remembered. And now thanks to you I have great video to watch again and again.
    I loved the music at the end of the second vid. Thanks buddy, I hope we meet again.

    anyone else having problems with the 1st video? the video basically stops at the 5:33 mark then the sounds change to a flowing creek but the hammock setup is still there. Even if I move the bar to the 6:49 time the hammock is still there but the sounds are different

    Had the same problem but clicked around it. Thought it might be the browser I was watching it on at the time. Must be a YouTube glitch.

    I tried clicking around it but it didn't work. I wanna see the video since Mt Rogers is probably our favorite place to go. Hamhocker stood in awe of all of the beauty that place has.
