Old Rag on a Chilly Day

No better way to celebrate the naked woods than by climbing Old Rag, the boulder-strewn hill on the eastern edge of Shenandoah Park. Thus Harry and I set out from Nethers on an early-January morning.

The five-hour, eight-mile loop is part cardio, part weights, part long walk downhill. Which means you can generate enough heat to stay comfortable on a 25-degree day, provided you’re working. That long walk isn’t much work though.

Ah well, it’s a lot more comfortable than climbing Mt. Washington in February, right Mr. Campbell?
