About October’s Header Photo
October’s Header Photo features a hazy and grainy view of Old Rag as seen from the nearby Appalachian Trail in Shenandoah National Park. When I lived in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle the AT in SNP was one of my favorite destinations and I climbed Old Rag at least once. It was an impressive climb considering the low elevation (3,291 ft) and close proximity to Washington, DC. When I say I “Climbed” it I do not mean “climb” in the technical sense. Rather, it was a steep walk up with a little scrambling.
