On Friday, we went to DC to see Dvořák’s New World Symphony with Tony’s family. On Saturday, we took David for a hike in the northern part of Shenandoah National Park. The road was still closed, but the ranger told us about a place we could park the car and hike.
It started out pretty – sunny, but cold. The snow up in that part of the park is a lot deeper than down at our end (not really surprising, but it did make me envious). It was a 1.8-1.9 mile hike to the top and the snow definitely made it feel longer. According to Summit Post, we went up over 1000 feet, so that might have had something to do with how hungry and tired we were by the time we got back to the car.
At the top, the wind was pretty high and it was quite cold. On the way up, we got really warm and shed lots of layers, but at the top, I was covering my skin (yes, that’s me beside David).
This is where we pulled into the park and were directed to the parking area in the bottom left corner.
