About Today’s Photo:
Robin & I climbed Burnt Rock Mountain yesterday. It’s a minor peak about half way between Camel’s Hump and the App Gap along the Long Trail. Though a short hike (2.6 miles one way) the last mile of the climb up is quite steep, rocky, and rooty. The view and the fact that we had the summit all to ourselves made it quite worth our whiles though! The early green of near summer was quite striking.
