Mount Rogers Pictures Up

Bill C, Jimmie and I had a great time with our backpacking trip.  The rhododendrons were in full bloom and we had perfect weather!  I hope to write more later, but for now Mount Rogers Hiking pictures can be found on my Flickr site.  Some of my favorites:

Also unlike the ponies at Assateague Island, these had absolutely no interest in our food. We had no Dorito snatching incidents.

    @geekhiker– Thanks! It is only a matter of time before it is my turn to be jealous of you. For example, your Cooper Canyon pictures look pretty darn awesome. 🙂
