Default Old Rag Hike - Part 3


After some good Keto food we prepared to head down to the "rock scramble"


But not before one more selfie


A "Rock Scramble" sounds fun, right?


Where did the trail go? Oh - just follow the little blue markers on the rocks!


The rock scramble went on for 2 miles! Fun? Maybe - Challenging? DEFINITELY!!

Default Old Rag Hike - Part 4


Some parts of the "scramble" were really cool


I'm glad that I wasn't any bigger


I made it through the Rock Scramble battered, bruised, but still in one piece


With the last of the steep slopes behind us we still had 2 miles to go


But that last part was easy-peasy - making it back to the car 15 minutes before sunset

I saw no bears, but I did see some very grumpy girl friends that had no idea what their partners were getting them in to. I'm quite proud of myself for getting through some of the tougher areas. My legs were ready. I didn't realize how much I'd be using my arms. The following day I was a limp noodle.

Default Old Rag Hike - Part 5







As tough as it was, Kelsey and I made a great memory that day. Will I do Old Rag again? I don't think so. Some of it was quite dangerous. One part of the trail required a rock to rock leap over a deep crevasse. That was not for the faint of heart, let me tell you. Never say never - but I think I can find other places to hike. Old Rag -- been there, done that.

Lovely pictures of your hill walk. I would have enjoyed the main route, but you can keep the scrambling! If you ever make it to the Lake District over here, you should try Sharp Edge on Blencathra!

Wowee! That looks like one amazing hike! I read some vague things about the rock scramble but didnít realize it was 2 miles. Plus all the tight spots. Wholly cow!
It has got to feel great to have done this hike. I am always a bit grateful to have found our WOE & being able to do something that 5 years ago would not have been possible. The whole world has opened up. Like you, once I have done something cool like that I am ready to move on to the next awesome adventure. There are so many out there.
Thanks for sharing. It was really fun to see the pix.

Thanks everybody! I didn't get a lot of hikes done in 2019. I would have loved to do more. However, the ones I did get in were awesome: Crater Lake (Oregon), Mt St. Helens (Washington) and Old Rag here in Virginia. The first two were more about scenic beauty and not nearly as challenging as this last one.

And YES Renee, It is amazing what we can do now; things that we wouldn't even have considered before. I'm not anywhere near my lowest weight. I seem to have stabilized around 25 pounds up from my 'skinny old man' days. I am strong and fit, though. I'm looking forward to the next challenge.

I Googled that. Yikes - you go first! There's no doubt that I could do it, but I think I'd prefer hiking around some medieval/roman ruins or rolling hills even better. I spoke with my daughters about a trip to England last night. All were interested -- especially if it involved getting in a day hike or two. We've already done the tourist trap thing. Seeing the English countryside sounds like a better plan. We've penciled it in for some time in 2021.

Except for that Old Rag hike, November was one of my weakest effort on the workout front in a long time. The Y closed for renovation at the end of October and reopened 3 weeks later. Did I get right back to my regular routine? No. It is amazing how quickly one can 'fall out of' a good routine. Kelsey was home for the holiday and she pressed me to go to the school track for a run. I ran 2.5 miles at a decent clip. The 'doing it' wasn't hard. The motivation to go do it seems to be the problem. The plan is to get back into a good routine this week. Talk is talk, though. Time to get it done. I like being fit. I don't want to lose it.
