Summiting Old Rag Mountain

This was an accomplishment for us! Here in Virginia, we are fortunate to be surrounded by natural beauty — close to the ocean and the mountains. We recently drove the short distance to Shenandoah National Park to make the daylong round-trip hike up Old Rag Mountain with our friend Richard. Climbing up to an elevation of 3,284′ includes getting ourselves up and through a challenging — and lengthy! — “rock scramble” portion. Most of the hike is shaded and the entire experience is just beautiful.

Bob’s short video gives a good sense of what it was like. Not bad for two seniors!

Below are some of our favorite snapshots — click on any photo to start a slideshow. Thanks for looking!

  1. Thank you for sharing this wonderful hike with us ! You’re amazing to be able to be so fit to enjoy first hand in discovering beautiful natural environment!
    Loved the professional video from Bob doing multi tasking during the hike in sharing your personal experience with us🤗🤗👏👏❤️❤️


    1. I enjoyed your simple walk in the park! We have a 9 mile loop at Silver Falls State Park, including walks behind and passing by 8 + water falls … not anywhere near as treacherous. I’d have to stop to look around, otherwise my eyes would be glued to the trail! Yeah for you two. I think it’s a great thing to forget your age🚸〽️🕺💃🏽👍❣️🌳🎄😍
