Our latest trip to Mount Rogers was as good as any we could remember. We arrived Friday night and got a lot of hiking in before we had to break out the Headlamps. It was windy, but we got all the tents set up and none blew away. The next day we hiked thru Rhododendron gap and then on to Scales and camped the second night in Wise. All told we backpacked about 12 miles and took in some of the most spectacular views.
