I Climbed A Mountain Today.

Yeah. Read that title one more time. I climbed a mountain today.

As I type this article, my body is weary and tired. I'm going to keep this brief. Crystal and I traveled to Hanging Rock State Park today in beautiful Stokes County, North Carolina. After hiking a long and rather strenuous uphill climb, 1.3 miles in length and 780 ft. of elevation gain, we arrived at the top to see some absolutely magnificent views. I'll let the photos do all the talking. Was I exhausted after climbing all that way? You bet I was. The path was S-T-E-E-P. The Hanging Rock trail path is gravel for most of the way up, but towards the end we encountered jagged rock steps. Oh man... I did some climbing.

If you ever have the opportunity, I highly recommend you visit Hanging Rock and check it out for yourself. Photos can't do it justice.
