Hiking in Pisgah National Forest - Shining Rock

There are plenty of reasons to hike in the Graveyard Fields area of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and magnificent views is just one of them.

1. Rhododendrons in Bloom
2. Blueberries! (They aren't ripe yet, but will be next month.)
3. Higher elevation = cool temps in July
4. Clear mountain air does wonders for the soul!
5. Panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains

Sunday we hiked to Shining Rock in Pisgah National Forest, following the Art Loeb trail at times. The actual bright white quartz of Shining Rock reminded me of spring snow melt in the Rockies. Grab your hiking boots, pack a lunch, and go check it out!
