The Bear Church Rock

Instead of my normal 6 mile run, I joined a group of friends today for a hike.  Our target was the Bear Church Rock, the Shenandoah National Park in Madison County, Virginia.  Elevation 2,210 feet.

We got an early start on this gorgeous weather.  As you can see from the picture above, just can’t ask for a better day to go for a  hike.  The total distance was about 8.5 miles round trip.

With the exception of the last mile which was a steep climb to the Overlook, the trail was very pleasant, shaded, and hugging the river.  Before leaving the trail, we soothed our aching feet by dipping them in the chilling yet refreshing river water.

Needless to say, I had a wonderful time and a good work all at the same trip.
