Little Getaway: Part 1 / Grayson Highlands

Over the weekend, we went west to Virginia. It was a nice, much needed getaway. We first ventured to the Chateau Morrisette winery + then stayed at Caleb's family mountain house up in Sparta.

We arrived in Sparta just before the last light + it made for magical pictures. And the moon made an appearance by the time our walk was over.

The next morning, we were off to the Grayson Highlands to spot some wild ponies. Spoiler: we didn't see any wild ponies but we did spot some tame ones with people on them. Mid-70s is my ideal temperature + after the hot weeks we've been having it was amazing.

We can now say we've hiked the Appalachian Trail. Or well, some of it. Okay, like two miles of it. It was only suppose to be one mile but we missed our transfer trail + did a five mile hike by accident. It happens, right?

The first half of the trip was a lot of walking + breathing + heavily breathing + sore feet + adventuring.
