Views from the Top

Hi everyone,

On June 8, I climbed Old Rag Mountain in Shenandoah National Park. The plan was to hike to the top, eat lunch, do some yoga in front of a spectacular view, and come back down. Unaware of what I was in for, I got home scraped, bruised, and exhausted 12 hours later.

The Kitties were worn out just from hearing about it, except for Lily who was just glad I got home. That makes two of us!

We got some good views along the way, at least....


Kiara and I hold it together.
Flowers even grow on mountains!

I had no idea what that hike was like either when I went with some girlfriends several years back. Even the dog had a bit of trouble scrambling over some of the rocks. However, it is beautiful up there and very satisfying to complete :o)

Good to hear from you, Melinda! I hope all is well. Yes, the hike was hard!!! I didn't expect so much rock climbing. But at least the photos came out well. :-)
