The following pictures are of late summer early fall wildflowers which can be found on Old Rag.
The following picture is stitched together from two shots that were taken around sunset on Saturday evening.
This picture is chronologically out of order but was taken a little earlier on Saturday from the part of Old Rag's summit that looks down over the Ridge Trail.
I only have a point and shoot digital camera but I try to capture the wonder of Culpepper's lights twinkling below Old Rag's Ridge Trail on Saturday evening.
Heading up the Weakley Fire Road on a reverse circuit.
Leaves on the fire road and a continuous stream of hikers are sure signs of Fall.
PRAYING THE NEWS
The following video was taken late in the day on Sunday. The folks you see at the end of the video were from a church choir and it seemed appropriate that about fifteen minutes after I finished reading the last page of Praying The News on my Kindle they showed up and practiced one of their hymns .
Note: During the song I was the only other hiker on the summit. Out of respect for my potential desire for solitude they had asked me before singing if I would mind.
I am acquainted with one of the authors of Praying The News so I am going to give it a shameless plug:
Remote mountaintop, inner city, suburban home, country farm, professional office … deeply Christian or having absolutely no idea what you believe in…… Praying The News is an inspirational; introduction, testimonial, and field guide to intentional prayer. If you’re interested in; celebrating your life, actualizing your belief in good, preparing or equipping yourself against life’s storms, pushing back against evils, Praying The News is an invaluable tool.
