Day 3 of May 2022 Virginia Trip, Grayson Highlands

The third day of my 2022 Memorial Day weekend trip. I would be doing a long day hike in Virginia’s Grayson Highlands State Park and the nearby Jefferson National Forest, featuring Mount Rogers as Virginia’s highest elevation point, some fun on the rocks along Wilburn Ridge, and a combination of forests and open meadows which were not a common sight in Virginia. Unfortunately, just like the previous two days, I still had to battle with annoying mud for portions of the hike.

Day 1 of May 2022 Virginia Trip, Hiking Tinker Cliffs

During the Memorial Day weekend last year, I hiked McAfee Knob and Dragon’s Tooth trails near Roanoke, Virginia, which I really enjoyed. So this year, I felt it’s only appropriate for me to finish the remainder of Virginia’s Triple Crown, Tinker Cliffs. While the views were spectacular, rain and muddy trails made it a rather disappointing trip.
