Virginia

Mount Rogers - 5,729 feet

 

Summited on 6/29/04 - Highpoint #11 of 50

Mark on the summit of Mount Rogers on 6/29/04.  

I summited Virginia on the way to summiting Kentucky on the way to backpacking in the Smokies. I got up at 4AM in Delware and drove all the way down almost to NC along I-81. The hike up from Grayson Highlands State park via the Wilburn Ridge trail and the AT is great. It has a wonderful alpine feel to it and it seemed like I was out West somewhere. On the otherhand, the summit of Mount Rogers is a swampy pit. Go figure. Oh well, the hike back was throroughly enjoyed and I was off to Kentucky.
