Hiking in the woods is one of my all time favorite things. Part of this comes from the ability to narrow one’s focus and get in touch with oneself in a way that’s hard to do in the modern world. That focus was especially heightened on our last hike because of the density of the fog. You really felt alone in the woods. No wifi just for a while.
I highly recommend the website Hiking Upward if you are looking for a good day hike in the Virginia area.
