Sophie Speidel invited a few of her VHTRC friends out to play on Saturday June 6 on The Priest and Three Ridges sections of the Appalachian Trail - turned out to be just a gorgeous day not only weather-wise, but scenery-wise. The mountain laurel were in full bloom, and we took way too many pictures as a result. Had a nice post-run party in the trail head parking lot, spreading some "trail magic" to a series of AT thru hikers, who were VERY happy to meet this crew and share in the picnic. Joe, Michele and I then hit the Dickey Ridge trail the next day, where the flora was not as impressive, but we had some nice fauna encounters.
