Traveling to Highland County on a rainy day

Fog on the mountain ridges of Highland County, VA."

Rt. 250 passing Mountain House on the way up Shenandoah Mountain.

Headwaters in Highland County.

Backroad of Highland....

Overlooking Highland from Shenandoah Mountain.

Shenandoah Mountain trail on a rainy, foggy day.

Camp lodge ... inside it was packed with young people.

The bridge to somewhere in the mountains....

The creek meandered downhill ...

... as the buses waited to return to Staunton.

Rope courses, climbing walls, soccer, mountain hiking trails, exploring the creek, football in the rain, fellowship and friendship ... add to that mix 80 young people bursting with energy ... and you have a bustling mountain lodge.

Even the rain and fog couldn't dampen the enthusiasm of spending time in the western reaches of Virginia. It was a good day.
