Ascent Trip Report

Took a day off to visit Central Virginia, as well as the northern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the southern end of the Skyline Drive. Started off the day with a trip to Cole Mountain - it was a nice hike but unfortunately it was pretty hazy, so while the views from the top were nice, I couldn't see all the way to Nebraska or anything.
