North Mountain, Virginia (Oct/27/2023) George Washington National Forest
I took the day off work last Friday and hiked North Mountain's northern ridge to Pete’s Cave and back. This was a repeat of a hike I did earlier in the year when there were no leaves on the trees. I'd thought then that it would make for a good fall foliage viewing trip, and boy, did it deliver! The best and most extensive fall foliage display I've ever seen.
Stats: 6.8mi, 1200ft gain, 5.5hrs
Waiting for sunrise. House Mountain in the distance.
