Last Saturday Andrea and I decided we didn't care it was raining, hopped in the car, and drove to Bull Run Mountain for some hiking!
Mountain might be a generous term as the summit was only 1300 feet, but it still felt wonderful to be out in the forest. And what a view from the top! Because it was raining, when we emerged on the granite cliffs overlooking the valley, it felt like we had fallen into the primordial world! I kept expecting to see dinosaurs pop out of the trees :)
A random collage of some pictures from the summit. Love the one in the middle of Andrea staring off into the distance :)
I may not be your typical tree hugger, but I love me my forests and hiking always makes any day a thousand times better!
