This past weekend, MM and I went out to the Shenandoah mountains to do this hike. We did it in the opposite direction of what is listed there… and it was a good idea too: so many steps that were way better to do in the up direction than the down direction. Especially since it was a 9 mile hike and about a half mile in, I realized that we hadn’t actually been hiking since May.
Anyway, it was a perfect weekend for the hike! The leaves were amazing!
At the final stream crossing when we were almost back to the car, I spotted a frog in the stream!
