Hike Bull Run Mountain

I decided to take off on my birthday this year and thank goodness because it was a beautiful 75 degrees yesterday. To enjoy this out-of-character mid-August D.C. day, I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to complete goal #12: Hike Bull Run Mountain. Plus, my birthday is the only day I can get Kris to do things he hates (like hike).

It’s a good three-mile-hike to the overlook, which is just breathtaking.

And it was so chilly that this was actually necessary.

Some takeaways:

  • I saw a pink mushroom
  • I rolled my ankle three times on the way down. At this point, I think I’ve broken something.
  • We followed this Hiking Upward path
  • Bull Run Mountain is the eastern most point of the Blue Ridge Mountains
  • I have the worst allergies

I swear I always say this when it involves nature, but I can’t wait to come back during the fall when the leaves have changed. Virginia, you’ve won me over yet again.
