Virginia mountains highlights

"Ran/hiked Robertson Mountain after going up and over Old Rag. An extremely tough climb as it packs much elevation gain within a short distance. Excellent views of Old Rag on the way up and beautiful views from the rock outcropping at the peak. " - Robertson Mountain, runshigleyrun, Feb 3, 2018
"Ran Old Rag and Robertson Mountain with Weaver. Brutal day of climbing. 4275 feet of elevation gain in only 14 miles. Cold, but clear with beautiful views of Shenandoah National Park and the Blue Ridge. " - Old Rag Mountain, runshigleyrun, Feb 3, 2018
"Scrambled over Bearfence Mountain with Weaver during a long trail run. Outstanding 360 degree panorama makes this one of the best climbs in Shenandoah National Park. I would consider this to be Old Rag's little brother. Although a short jaunt to the top, the scrambling is a blast. " - Bearfence Mountain, runshigleyrun, Jan 15, 2018
"A rather uneventful out and back portion to our trail run of the day. Although a nice view from the summit, it paled in comparison to Bearfence Mountain. Should have reversed our run. Oh well...nice, easy run to the peak of Lewis from the campground. " - Lewis Mountain, runshigleyrun, Jan 15, 2018
"Ran the icy Lewis Falls loop with Weaver and added Blackrock along the way. Deer were everywhere on the mountain. Sweeping views of the Shenandoah Valley from the rock outcroppings. A bitterly cold day kept the crowds away. Caught the panorama as the sun was falling and casting beautiful light on the valley while making shadows over the mountains." - Blackrock, runshigleyrun, Jan 15, 2018
