We have hiked thru part of Virginia in the snow and ice, but I am most concerned about the steep descents with ice on
  2. Jenkins Shelter to Brushy Top - Laurel Creek - Appalachian Trail Virginia

    This was a quick overnight to complete some miles between Jenkins Shelter (AT Mile 580.5) and US Route 52 at Brushy Mountain Outpost (AT Mile 591.8). I parked at the big parking lot on VA615, Suiter Road / Laurel Creek in the Trail Boss Loop parking area (AT Mile 584.9). This is right on the AT and excellent parking. The trail North to Route 52 is pretty uneventful. Fortunately, there were a lot of mushrooms sprouting from all the wet weather and a few ...

    Play List: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL...l5QRN-rC39oVpA
    Just finished the AT in GA from Springer to Bly over the holiday week. Was very muggy and humid which made for a sweaty trip. Definitely worth it though…GA was far more beautiful than I anticipated. By the end of the week I even had a tramily, which I greatly miss right now. I tried daily videos, which went ok other than the uploading part, lol.
  5. Old Orchard Shelter to Hurricane Mountain Shelter – Views at Scales

    This was a wonderful hike to extend my AT section miles North from where we left off at the Scales Campground near Grayson Highlands last Fall. I parked at the Fox Creek trailhead parking on VA 603 and hiked South up past the Old Orchard Shelter and to where the trail meets the Pine Mountain Trail. I took a little time and enjoyed the fantastic views a little farther South and then returned North to the Old Orchard Shelter. It was very windy and ...
