Last Patrols of Summer September 20 and 21, 2009

The last two patrols of Summer 2009 Saturday and Sunday September 20th and 21st.

About fifteen miles from Old Rag.

Four miles from Old Rag.

Lots of folks getting directions and paying the boundary station entrance fee.
Note picture distorted on purpose.

One of Shenandoah National Park's friendly and informative rangers.

Take note of the metal bands. They have direction and mileage information.

My point and shoot does funny things with just slight changes of shooting angles. The photos stitched together below were taken from the exact same spot within a few seconds of each other.

An interesting snail was out on the Saddle Trail at night.

A large blowdown in the switchbacks just below Bartenders Spring on the Ridge Trail.

The mist/fog was blowing from the southeast and rolling down the north west side of Old Rag as evening approached. It was a smokey wispy fog.

A family coming down the Ridge Trail on the rocks at the top of the first false summit.

There were two eyes glowing from my headlamp in the upper lot. Thinking it was a raccon I grabbed my camera and flashed a picture only to discover it was a Grey Fox or very small Coyote who disappeared after recovering from the flash.
