Of Weekend Mountains

After some unexpected twists & turns, we decided to travel a road with many turns & twists, ending up in the heart of northern Appalachia. 
I encountered a very handsome Yeti on one of my hikes.... he looks rather a lot like my guy...
Black bears and board games fill rainy nights. 
While hiking our 15 miler on Day 2, we stumbled upon the Farifax Stone,  signalling the head of the Potomac River.  
It was 10 miles up the mountain to reach the Fire Tower with the hopping toads, prancing stags, and barred owl. 
Rainy feet  warmed by the fire... top 5 feelings
When one stumbles upon a series of rocks, one climbs...

Through our hikes through the forest & local book stores, I learned of the guy's infatuation with fungus! :) 
Sunbeams hitting our face as we find hidden falls great summation of the weekend.
