Hope you’re having a great weekend :) I went hiking yesterday with my friend Ashley and a bunch of people from a hiking club I belong to — it was so awesome!!
GORGEOUS weather, and beautiful views. We hiked about 10 miles — holy crap — which included lots of fun rock scrambling and extreme uphill and downhill!
The hike was in Luray, VA, which is about two hours from DC. Virginia is so beautiful! It’s awesome how close hikes like this are to the city.
We did a big loop which included two offshoot rock scrambles up both Duncan Knob and Strickler Knob. If you’re in the DC area, I highly recommend this hike. It was strenuous, but SO fun. The rock scrambling is my favorite part!
Duncan Knob’s elevation is 2,200 ft, and Strickler Knob’s is 2,240 ft! Hot damn! :)
Goofing around at the top of the first peak, obviously.
What a fun day. This is definitely one of my new favorite hikes in the DC area. Nothing better than sitting on top of a mountain on a gorgeous day :) Met some really cool new people, too!
We were gone from about 7 a.m. until 8 p.m., which included almost 7 hours of hiking plus a pit stop for much needed dinner & shenanigans once we got out of the park!
I came home, showered, and basically passed out immediately, which meant my hair looked ridiculous today because I slept with it wet ;)
I’m off to run some errands! Tonight I’m going downtown with some friends to see a play, “The Alchemist,” at the Shakespeare Theatre. I’m super excited.
Ta-ta, friends! What did you do this weekend?
