Mt Rogers Recreation Area, VA

Mt Rogers was our destination for this weekend’s 4th of July camping adventure with the Brothers family. The only downside to our trip – over 4 hrs each way with tons of switchbacks. Hard under normal circumstances, even more challenging with a camper in tow. But, we made it and had a BLAST!

The kids got to canoe, bike….oh and we all got to fish, hike, visit a local winery, and just hang out and have fun!

Some pics of the fun –

DSC_5320We all took a hike on the Virginia Creeper Trail. For more about the trail, click here. Smooch was the one who was the most tired at the end.

photoAt the Creeper Trail we got a sticker to add to our collection for the camper. It is the VCT one. The goal is to get a sticker for every place we camp. What a fun thing to do!
