Fire on the Mountain: Autumn



On a recent day off Virginia and I hiked up to Greenbrier State Park. This used to be a 14 hour drive for us, now that we live here its a 45 minute hike, starting at our driveway.

From our corner you get a spectacular view of South Mountain, in its Autumn colors.



Anything capable of producing color seems to be going at it hammer and tongs right now:


Annapolis Rock looms over our mountainside neighborhood. We're hoping to hike down the AT to it yet this Fall.


Its all uphill to get to the lake at Greenbrier State Park. A well-sited bench provided us with an opportunity to both catch our breath and enjoy the beautiful South Mountain scenery. This is where we get to live, smack in the heart of Civil War country.


Your intrepid hikers enjoying the best that life has to offer.



See you on the trail,

Ranger Mannie
