Shoulder Season


Various Trips Mid Feb 2013 till March 31, 2013 

There is lots of history to be found in the hollows just outside the SNP.   The next four shots feature the Post Office of Graves Mill Virginia which was open from 1800's until just a few years ago.      It must have been one of the smallest Post Offices in the United States.

Around two weeks ago I had the opportunity to help a young hiker with a sprained ankle.

The next picture is of a dog being reunited with its owners after going missing on Mt  Robinson and being found by two good Samaritans on Old Rag.
The good Samaritans.
At the end of March 2013 we had 3 inches of snow on a Monday morning.
Dusk on the lower Old Rag Ridge Trail.
The Old Rag Contact Station was opened for 2013.
My friend Louise and I had rented a cabin in early March.

During the Winter and Early Spring Old Rag trails can often look like this when there is no snow to be seen at lower elevations.    Have fun but be safe.
