Roanoke Outdoor and Social Club Hiker Challenge – Advanced Hiker

April 26, 2009 at 10:18 pm 3 comments

On Saturday, James I. and I ascended Flat Top at Peaks of Otter. That was the last hike I needed to complete the Roanoke Outdoor and Social Club’s Advanced Hiker category in their Hiker Challenge.  They have challenged their members to do specific area hikes and submit photographs of themselves at the top.  If the Hiker Challenge page is up to date, then I’m the second hiker and the first female to finish that category! : )

    @geekhiker – Hehe. Believe it or not, one of the hardest things about this Hiker Challenge was finding pictures of myself at the top. For example, I had been to Kelly’s Knob about a dozen of times. That is the only picture I could find of myself at top. Now, I have tons and tons and tons of pictures of the dogs at the top or the twisted, mutated tree at top. Sadly, that wasn’t the challenge! 🙂

    Ahh, those are some of my favorite hikes! I’m from the Blacksburg area and use to hike that area all the time! I’m now in Virginia Beach, so it’s quite a drive to get an actual mountain, sad, but loved your pics!

    Anyways, I’m new to wordpress and was just wandering around meeting my new “neighbors” and just thought I’d leave that quick little note that I enjoyed reading your blog!
