2018 Skyline Drive and Chimney Rocks Hike

Sunday following the football game Jess and I filled the day with scenic drives, hiking and a winery. We started at the southern end of Skyline Drive and stopped about 20 miles in to hike Calvary and Chimney Rocks. It reminded me of the hike we did a couple years ago up to Old Rag without the scambling. It featured some wooded trails up and down hills that went by some rocks with lookouts and good views. The trail was 3.2 miles and took about an hour and a half.

We finished the drive to the Swift Run Gap entrance and continued to Barboursville Vineyards where we tasted wines and enjoyed the sunset.

2017 OptOutside Hike

This year after Thanksgiving my family went for an #OptOutside hike in the James River Park System in Richmond on Black Friday.  The weather was beautiful for a hike and we spent about 2 hours going around Belle Isle and the Potterfield bridge.

2016 James River Hike With Jess

Jess was in town for the holidays and with it being such a nice day I showed her the new pedestrian bridge over the James River and we retraced the hike I did early this month.  We ran into Lauren and Patrick who took a couple pictures of us.

2015 Hiking Old Rag

Following yesterday’s UVA Football game Jess and I were out on the trail early hiking Old Rag.  It was a fun hike with some nice trails as well as some scrambling at the top.  We started hiking around 9 and weren’t done until close to 5pm.  30,000 steps for me.
