Hey everyone!

Instead of doing my work I have planned a hike for this Saturday! We will be doing Cole Mountain via Appalachian Trail, which is a Moderate 6.0-mile loop located in the GWJNF. At some point it crosses through a large meadow with what looks like excellent views.

We will be leaving from the Echols dorm at 9:00am and we should get back to uva at around 2:30pm. It is about an hour and 25 minute drive to the hike (yours truly will be driving). It looks like temps will be about 70 degrees Fahrenheit during the hike.
