Our next hike was on the Art Loeb Trail to Shining Rocks.
We had another great day weather-wise
This hike went along a ridge line across a lot of little peaks.
And a lot was above tree line.
On the top of one of the many little peaks.
You can see the trail winding away in the distance.
Looking down at the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The top of a granite dome sticking up behind the ridge. There is a bunch of rock climbing on it.
Top of Tennent Mountain.
Entering the Shining Rock Wilderness
There is the shining rock.
Paul climbing up the Shining Rock
The shining rock is a bunch of white granite type rocks.
Neat ice formations.
On the way back we took a lower route along an old road
We then joined the Sea to Mountain Trail.
