Last ORMS (Old Rag Mountain Steward) weekend 2009
Great weather on both days but as you can see from this photo the colored leaves are almost all down. The Ridge Trail was very wet because of the tremendous amount of rain from the three days before.
While not overflow level crowds it was still very busy on the mountain this weekend. The next picture was taken during Saturday's preparations. Congratulations to Tony for earning his ORMS shirt.
A look back at the first false summit from near the cave.
A better shot of some hikers leaving the first false summit.
I have been seeing quite a few walking sticks lately.
A shot from the summit looking off towards Skyline Drive. No leaf color in this photo.
Huge apologies to ORMS members including myself for not getting any photos of the following activities from this weekend but I at least want to note them. All of the photos above were from Saturday when we had Jeremy, Ann, Valerie, Tony, Michael, Emily, and myself. We ended up only needing to deal with getting one non-ambulatory hiker off the fire road.
