And One More From Grayson Highlands | July 2011

We figured out a way to get there and back in one weekend without too much hiking/driving all in one day. We made our stop over in Elkin, which is just over two hours from Raleigh, and just under two hours from Grayson Highlands. Decided that along with the tight time-line, the heat made it less desirable to camp.

Here is Gregg, descending from Wilburn Ridge on the Appalachian Trail. It's actually the Northbound AT, but it's what drops you back down into Massie Gap before turning northward again. gregg_graysonhighlands
