My dad and I decided to dip out of Thanksgiving festivities this year to go hiking. We're both fairly experienced, he's hiked the entire state of Georgia and I've logged at least 100 miles. Anyway, I haven't been out hiking in ages, and I had such an amazing time. We hiked up from the montebello fish hatchery (near waynesboro, Virginia) to the seeley-woolworth shelter the first night. Then we backtracked a little and hiked up to spy rock. All I can say is that that view was one of the most amazing things I've ever experienced. From spy rock we hiked on to the Priest shelter and the last mile or so was one hell of a climb, but it was lots of fun. Then today we came down from the mountain through a trail that goes to Crabtree Falls. If any of you are within 4 hours of Crabtree falls or Spy rock, it's definitely something worth seeing. All in all, I just had one of the best weekends of my life, and I got to spend it with my dad.
