The Grayson Highlands

An old camera phone picture can't do it justice, but I'm sure you already suspect that. I hiked the Grayson Highlands portion of the AT this morning, and now I'm heading up Mount Rogers, the highest mountain in Virginia.

I forgot there was an exciting possibility today, until I happened upon a pile of scat. Surely that isn't the first time you heard that phrase today, but in this particular case, it means that I may soon see the wild ponies of the Grayson Highlands! So far I've had no such luck, but the day is young.
