Hike: Rich Mountain Loop Trail

I did this hike last Thursday, but it took me this long get around to making an album.

Lovely trail; 8.5 miles starting with a strenuous ascent but paying off with a long, easy ridgeline descent back down into the cove. Lots of great views along the way. As you’ll see if you check out the gallery, highlights included some tussling buck deer, and an up-close-and-personal encounter with a pileated woodpecker.
