High point #21 - Mount Rogers, Virginia - elevation 5,728 feet - 9 mile round-trip hike (mostly on the AT). What a beautiful hike this was with wild ponies included.
High point #22 - Black Mountain, Kentucky - elevation 4,139 feet - 3 mile round-trip hike on the Black Mountain Ridge Road. On top we ran into two turkey hunters coming back with their catch. Tom was thrilled about their victory but I was a bit sad at the site of the beautiful birds.

We are in Lenoir, NC until the 23rd then go to Winchester, VA to hit the high points in MD, WV and PA. Love our cozy campsite here in Lenoir.
Til next time...Happy Trails!
