A Day After Thanksgiving Hike at Peaks of Otter, Virginia

 

What's your favorite time to take a mountain hike? I think November may top the list for me. The temperature is good for a rigorous hike. There are a few tenacious leaves left around. The crowds have to be smaller than the fall peak. And the trees that have lost their leaves provide a much better view than a fully clothed forest.

Here are some shots of our hike. If you want to see more click here for the gallery.

We hiked with a 22 year old who was on a quest. If you haven't been hiking in a while, and you hike with a 22 year old who is jogging UP the trail ahead of you, it might make you start thinking about getting back to the gym!

I forgot to mention that there was a little scattered rain, just enough to make it interesting. We did watch rain showers move across the mountains in the distance. It was beautiful.
