Upon the Blue Ridge Mountains....

So many mountains so little time.  As we head from the southeast up north, we have had some time to explore & play in some beautiful places in North Carolina & Virginia, as we head to Pennsylvania for the Great Green America Fest. While in North Carolina we hit up some great mountain biking in the Pisgah National Forest, and climbing at Looking Glass Rock , the east coast’s Yosemite.  Then on our program at  Fontana Dam, with their hiking club, we saw amazing flora in the Smoky Mountains, and discussed Leave No Trace out on the trail. Venturing further north on the Blue Ridge Parkway we stopped at Shenandoah National Park to hike, camp, and explore. We have endured some spring weather on the east with rain, thunderstorms, snow flurries, and tornadoes, but we are still hanging tough.  The sun peaked through just a bit once we hit Pennsylvania, just in time for a little history stop in Gettysburg, PA where the turning point of the Civil War happened. Gettysburg was one of the largest & bloodiest battles of the Civil War.  Next stop Great Green America Fest!

Please enjoy our slideshow from North Carolina, Virginia, & Pennsylvania!

Happy Trails,
