Hiking Mount Baldy

Posted August 17th, 2013 by Jeff.
The view I saw on the way to the top looked similar to this for a couple miles! I climbed from about 4,000 ft elevation to the top of Mt Baldy - which is 10,064 ft.

Little Stoney Falls

Posted February 28th, 2009 by Jeff.
A wintery shot of the upper falls of Little Stoney Falls, located in Dungannon, VA.

Here are driving directions, from Gate City, VA:
  • Turn onto VA 71 north (no sign here).
  • After one mile, turn left on VA 72 and proceed north (through Ft. Blackmore and
    Dungannon, Va.) for 22.1 miles.
  • Look for USFS sign, to USFS Hanging Rock Recreation Area (about 2.6 miles north of
    Dungannon, Va).
  • At extremely sharp switchback, go straight (left side of highway) into picnic area and
    park.


Here is a Google map.

Grayson Highlands State Park

Posted July 27th, 2008 by Jeff.
These are some photos I took at Grayson Highlands State Park last Summer. It is one of the most wonderful places for admiring nature ever. It's located adjacent to the Mount Rogers Recreation Area, between Troutdale and Whitetop, Virginia. The park is recognized by the Audubon as a great place to birdwatch and is home to a number of wild ponies. Other wildlife can also be seen in this beautiful park, such as deer and rabbits.
Directions:
Google Map
This Google Map will take you to the park, but be sure to use the road signs to stay on Route 58, as Google's directions can be tricky to follow (the distances should be roughly correct though). Google calls the road that takes you into the park VA-362, though I don't believe it is marked as such.
Once you turn in, you will drive a short distance to park's pay station. Parking is 3 bucks, but is worth much more than that. Once you've paid, drive 2-3 miles up to the Massie Gap parking area. It's a paved parking area connected to the road on the right. You should see the trees opening up to a large clearing, where you can take Rhododendron Trail to many destinations.
You will be on the trail soon if you walk to the left of the picnic table near the parking area. Follow the trail through the gate and up the hill. Anytime from here, you're likely to see wild ponies grazing the many acres of beautiful land. Please respect the park rules and don't wander far from the trail or feed the ponies.
There are multiple trails to explore, but my friends and I chose to follow the Appalachian Trail, taking a left at the sign for the AT about a half mile from the parking area. About a half mile onto the AT, we followed Wilburn Ridge Trail, the blue blazed trail that goes up to the summit of Wilburn Ridge. The 360 degree views from here are more amazing than my camera could capture.
I read that when Rhododendrons are in bloom (May-June), Rhododendron Gap is beautiful. I think we had just missed this. It is about 2.5 miles from Massie Gap on the AT.

Lua

Posted June 26th, 2008 by Jeff.
A lot has happened since I posted here last, like me buying a house in Bristol, TN. But it has been far too long. It is ridiculous, I know, but I have been pretty busy lately. I do have lots of images, probably five of which are post worthy, which I will post soon.
But for now, I got a dog.
